Mixologist Brett Butler shares recipes for ‘Black Manhattan,’ ‘I’m Kind of a Big Dill’ cocktails/mocktails

You can prepare cocktails at home just as smooth and tasty as Brett W. Butler’s because his Alcomy Elixirs can be purchased at the Carmel and Fishers Summer Farmers Markets through September!

Brett is the owner/operator of ALCOMY LLC. and he joined us Wednesday on “Life.Style.Live!” to share the recipes for “Black Manhattan” and “I’m Kind of a Big Dill” cocktails/mocktails.

“I’m Kind of a Big Dill” (A Ron Burgundy-inspired mocktail/cocktail)

For the cocktail:

Add the mango, cilantro, dill and passion fruit syrup to a mixing glass or Boston shaker. Muddle thoroughly for about 20 seconds. Add the rest of the ingredients, ice and shake vigorously for about 20 seconds. Double-strain over ice in a Collins glass and float seltzer water. Garnish with fresh dill sprig and mango. To make the cocktail version, add the alcohol, shake and double-strain over ice in a large double-rocks glass, w/out the seltzer. Garnish with fresh dill and mango.
