A Manhattan in Park City part 5

As Jessica Ruth Goldberg conducted interviews with up-and-coming New York filmmakers at the Sundance Film Festival, many of them participated in our recipe series, “A Manhattan in Park City.” The filmmakers shared their favorite New York cocktail, and exactly how they prefer it served. Jessica researched how to get the drink in Park City, Utah, where the parties pop but the liquor laws are hard to follow. 

Craig Zobel, director of Compliance, is a whiskey drinker. That’s pretty simple to deliver. It’s an intense ingredient, but it’s the only one. Even when the state-run liquor stores are closed on Sundays, Craig can order a whiskey in any restaurant with a full service liquor license—as long as he’s eating too. If it’s Sunday and he’s not hungry, he’ll need to hunt up a licensed “club,” where he’ll be served freely from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 in the morning.

For Craig we’re serving up a double shot of whiskey in a long, tall glass: the Double-Zobel.

Ingredients

  • 3 oz. whiskey
  • 1 highball glass

Directions

Pour and serve.

A Manhattan in Park City part 4

As Jessica Ruth Goldberg conducts interviews with up-and-coming New York filmmakers at the Sundance Film Festival, we’re inviting them to participate in our recipe series, “A Manhattan in Park City.” Filmmakers are sharing their favorite New York cocktail, and exactly how they prefer it served. Jessica will research how to get the drink in Park City, Utah, where the parties pop but the liquor laws are hard to follow. We’ll post the results in Blast’s Recipes section, along with the new name of the drink that our filmmakers inspire.

Paul Dolia drank whiskey with Kristina as they developed her feature, Faith Love and Whiskey. Now that the film is on the winter festival circuit, Paul likes his whiskey in hot cider with spice. The Park City Market is open every day until 11:00 at night. The state-run liquor store across the parking lot is open until 10:00 except on Sundays. At the Market at Park City, cider can be found in the refrigeration aisle, and with the bottled juices. Cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg are in the baking aisle.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of cider
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 cloves
  • 1.5 oz. whiskey

Directions

Heat the cider and spices in a saucepan, until simmering. Pour into a big mug, and then add whiskey.
We call this drink Hot Paul—because he is.
