A New Addition to My Drinks Cabinet

The oh-so-talented and ever-so-cool Ely Brothers extended an invite to the recent Nail or Fail event for Drambuie at Garage Bar.  The event pitted bartenders from across Columbus in the battle for the best reimagined Rusty Nail. 

PK voted for Wayne Walters of Park Street Cantina with his Wasabi Nail.  I loved this because it was part cocktail, part appetizer.  Genius.  He was kind enough to share his recipe with me.  And I’m kind enough to share it with you, too.

Wayne Walters’s Wasabi Nail

1 1/4 oz Drambuie

1/4 oz cucumber juice

1/4 oz grated fresh ginger

1/4 oz wasabi

4 oz sour mix

Shake with ice, pour in a martini glass, garnish with a sliver of wasabi marinated carrot and a skewer of shrimp.

Playlist, thanks to the super-cool DJ, included my personal going-out favorite New in Town, by Little Boots.
