The Black Dog at Tales of the Cocktail

My good friends over at Embury Cocktails were kind enough to stop by the Boca Loca luncheon at Tales of the Cocktail this year, and captured me on film while Jason Rowan grilled me after a late night and an early morning of prepping for the lunch.

    Loved, loved, loved this cocktail (and Clyde Common) on my trip to Portland earlier this month!

  • Mata says:

    Hey you look good in RED black dog! Good to see you’re still the best eh? Hmmm I wonder if I should try that in the morning??? Not…LOL ; )

  • Shawna Loyd says:

    Hey Jeff, Shawna here…your good friend from Eugene! You shake me down and double strain me anytime! haha. I am jealous…me miss yo’drinks, baby.

  • Louis says:

    Hey Jeff,

    Thanks for the advice. And you look like I did the morning after my first absinthe experience.

  • Marius says:

    I just made one of these (evening). This would indeed be great in the morning. Add some hot buttery toast on the side, and you have a balanced breakfast. Tasty tasty!

  • Mike S. says:

    This does look good, and I’ll give it a try (in the evening…). Question: Why does the cachaca look cloudy when you first drop it into the mixing glass?

  • Garretto says:

    And a Black hair of that there dog, no doubt!
    A new drink from JM!!
    Looks great,
    I may try mine a bit later in the day.
    Thank you!

    Way to hang in there. 🙂

    Drink sounds good–if not too hung. 😉

  • Brant says:

    Good morning drink. A la Pisco Sour.

  • Man up, Kopplin!

    And Jackers, while I didn’t quite “throw up in my mouth”, there was some hesitation to be serving, tasting or even smelling any alcohol at that hour of the morning. It just made me glad that I wasn’t working for a mezcal or Islay scotch company that day.

  • Neil Kopplin says:

    The black dog is amazing until you have to make 20 of them during happy hour.

  • Jackie Patterson says:

    Hahaha! Did you almost throw up in your mouth when you first said Boca Loca? You look like me during my tasting room event. Hurting. The drink looks dee-lish despite your hangover.

  • Jenny Adams says:

    yum … but then again i’m probably biased … you know me and egg white cocktails …. ha!
    Good drink, nice job.

  • Jeff Johnson says:

    Nice cocktail recipe…will definitely have to give it a try. Nice seeing you making it too!
