Kings of the Wyld, by Nicholas Eames
While Kings of the Wyld certainly stands as a fabulous fantasy adventure in its own right, a large part of its character comes from the myriad references to classic rock of the 60s and 70s. I knew very early on that this cocktail would feature bourbon, and I played around with a few ideas based on Led Zeppelin, The Stones and The Beatles, but ultimately I had to settle on Pink Floyd. I like to think that SAGA would approve. 🙂
You will need:
- Glass Tumbler
- Strainer or Cheesecloth
- Toothpick or little plastic sword thingy
- 10 black grapes
- Ice Cubes
- 1 oz Grape Juice
- 2 oz Bourbon
- 1 oz Triple Sec
- 1 Pinch Salt
Fill a glass tumbler with ice and set aside.
Add 8 of the 10 grapes to the blender, along with a couple of ice cubes, grape juice, bourbon, triple sec and salt. Pulse to break up the ice, and then blend until smooth. Pour through a strainer or cheesecloth to remove any grape skins and seeds.
Pour the remaining mixture over the ice, and spear the couple of remaining grapes on a toothpick or plastic sword for garnish.
Cheers! Wish you were here. 😉
