AFF CocktailPosted: June 27, 2011
I’ve never been to The Backstage Bar, (in Culver City), which apparently calls itself “the best dive bar in the world”, but any bar that is 75 years old might meet that description!
LA Times published this drink recipe by their bartender, that sounds just great. Next time I’m playing mixologist, I’m definitely giving this a try. The name is short for the “unprintable praise” that a customer said when the bartender served it to her. It was close to “Absolutely — Fabulous!”
The AFF by Steve Chen:
1 ounce Absolut Raspberri
1/2 ounce Chambord
1/2 ounce peach schnapps
Splash fresh lime juice
2 ounces cranberry juice
Shake all the ingredients together and pour over ice in a tall glass. Garnish with a cherry and a lime.
