Heat of the Moment
The Heat of The Moment is our cocktail curator Neil Donachie’s twist on a drink called the Crimes Of Passion, which was created by Hunter Orahood during his five year tenure at the astonishingly brilliant Attaboy bar in NYC.
Before moving to the Lower East Side’s Attaboy bar, Orahood was the bar manager at The Marlton Hotel, a small and reliably stylish hotel owned by one of Kocktail’s favourite hoteliers, the inimitable Sean MacPherson.
Before its transformation into the Marlton Hotel, the building used to be a single room lodgings and even housed America’s Beat Generation hero, Jack Kerouac for a while, whilst he wasn’t ‘on the road’.
The Heat of the Moment uses a base of rum instead of Tequila and a splash of Campari to add a slightly bitter orange profile to the passionfruit and lime mix.
Garnish with a light sprinkle of Cayenne Pepper and allow yourself to get caught up in the passionate heat of the moment…
