Summer Craft Cocktail – Four Peaks Desertini

Four Peaks Summertime Craft Cocktail Series

Summertime in the desert isn’t for everyone. It takes a certain life form to inhabit this tough terrain but for those of us just stubborn enough to endure this “dry heat”, we are constantly vigilant of refreshing concoctions that will help soothe our parched throats.

Enter Four Peaks Desertini. This cocktail is a blissful blend of Four Roses bourbon, strawberry puree, basil, Four Peaks White Ale, and has a hint of bubbly. Elegant enough for a martini glass yet delectable enough to enjoy with dessert, as a dessert or even as an aperitif!

1.5 oz Four Roses Bourbon
.5 oz strawberry puree
4 basil leaves
.25 oz Four Peaks White Ale syrup*
Splash of sparkling white wine

*Four Peaks White Ale syrup can be made ahead of time and is much like the Hop Knot syrup.


White Ale Syrup
One part White Ale
One part sugar
Mix until sugar dissolves. The syrup is good for two weeks but will need refrigerated. (The sugar stabilizes the alcohol.)

Fill a martini glass with ice and a splash of water to chill. Set aside. In a bartender tin, muddle three basil leaves with Four Roses bourbon, strawberry puree, Four Peaks White Ale syrup, and sparkling white wine. Shake vigorously until frothy. Dump water and ice from the martini glass. Strain contents of tin into the martini glass. Garnish with one basil leaf on the side.

Mix until sugar dissolves. The syrup is good for two weeks but will need refrigerated. (The sugar stabilizes the alcohol.)
