Anthony Returns to the WPIX-TV Morning Show

I visited the WPIX-TV Morning Show to mix up three Fourth of July-inspired cocktails using beer, cider, and wine as the main ingredients: the Red, White and Blueberry, a Cider Flip, and my original Pear Royale Martini.

Red, White and Blueberry
In a pint glass, layer:
6 oz. Bluepoint Blueberry Ale (bottom)
6 oz. Guinness Stout (top)
Drizzle over top:
1/2 oz. Chambord

Cider Flip
In a mixing tin with ice, add:
2 oz. Heavy Cream
2 oz. Egg Beaters
1 tbsp. Superfine Sugar
1/4 tsp. Dried Pumpkin
1/4 tsp. Grated Lemon Peel
Shake until mixture is thickened, add:
1 oz. Bacardi Light Rum
4 oz. Woodchuck Amber Hard Cider
- Shake gently to incorporate, strain into a large wine glass
- Garnish with freshly grated nutmeg

Pear Royale Martini
In a mixing tin with ice, add:
1-1/2 oz. Chianti
1 oz. Crème de Cassis
Shake until tin is frosted, add:
1-1/2 oz. Prosecco
- Roll into mixing glass and back into tin
- Strain into a martini glass lined with thinnly-sliced Seckel pear
- Garnish with a float of 3 fresh raspberries
