Yelp event at Traif

This past Monday night we attended a “Yelp Elite” event, where Yelp rewards its most-frequent and best reviewers by throwing them a little shindig.  Finger Lakes Distilling donated some Glen Thunder to the party that was held at the 8-week-old Traif, in South Williamsburg. 

Noah and I hijacked a table and brought some additional samples for the Yelpers to try. Photo courtesy of Benjamin Lozovzky.

Heather, manager and co-owner of Traif, created some stellar cocktails with the corn whiskey.  My favorite was the Red Pearl and Heather was kind enough to send me the recipe.

Red Pearl

1.5 oz Glen Thunder
1 slice of jalapeno (add or take away for desired degree of spice) 
3 leaves of thai basil
4 cubes of kiwi (skin off, cube-like shapes) 
.25 oz of citrus sour (sour mix–our mix is a combination of lime, lemon, orange, simple syrup and water)
.25 oz simple simple syrup

Muddle the jalapeno, thai basil and kiwi.  Add ice, Glen thunder, citrus sour, and simple syrup.  Shake all together in shaker. Sip and Enjoy!

Just when you thought it was going to be too spicy, the kiwi would kick in. This cocktail was a perfect complement to the porky dishes. Photo credit same as above.
