The 7 Point Star Cocktail is part of the G7 Cocktails, a series of 7 unique cocktail recipes created by some of the best bartenders in Sydney specifically for our sister website Gourmantic’s 7th Birthday celebrations.
The 7 Point Star Cocktail is created by Freddy Rayfield of The Wild Rover in Sydney. The Wild Rover is a whisk(e)y specialist bar and synonymous with Irish Whiskey. The bar holds The Whisky Cooperative with monthly tastings and events as well as a Whiskey Passport to record the drams tasted from the bar.
The cocktail is a perfect winter drink that takes Jameson Irish whiskey and adds a house-made mulled wine syrup infused with 7 spices: cardamom, cloves, cinnamon, black pepper, paprika, vanilla and star anise. The drink is beautifully balanced, luxuriant and smooth with a good mouthfeel and warm spices upfront while the whiskey lingers in the background – one guaranteed to warm you up during winter months.
