Our friends over at ShakeStir have asked the nearly 2,000 (and growing) bartenders in their community to submit signature cocktail recipes for potential coverage on The Daily Meal. Each Wednesday, the drink that snags the most 5-star ratings (according to his or her ShakeStir peers) will be featured on The Daily Meal — along with a recipe, photo, and link to the selected bartender's profile — as part of the new weekly "Hump Day" Cocktail series.
From London bartender Dave Meadows at the Piano Bar comes the Queens Boulevard, a classic cocktail infused with a surprising ingredient: Australian wine. Says Meadows, the Queens Boulevard is "a stylish cocktail, which brings together the elegance of Chambord and pays tribute to the great Australian rosé wines. Its sweet taste is balanced well with the dryness of the wine and the vanilla aftertaste pulls all the flavors together and finishes the drink off nicely."
Thanks to our bartender friends at ShakeStir for contributing, and stay tuned for more Hump Day Cocktails!
