At the virtual Pinterest party, we’ll be serving (ie: pinning) the HGTV Dream Home 2013 Signature Cocktail: The New South. Troy Ball of Troy & Sons, a North Carolina-based distillery specializing in finely made whiskeys and heirloom moonshine, commissioned John Aquino to create the cocktail. He is the mixologist at Wild Olive on Johns Island S.C. near Kiawah Island, the location of this year’s HGTV Dream Home.

Plan to mix a New South of your own tomorrow night and join us for this interactive event!

The New South: Signature Cocktail for HGTV Dream Home 2013

Stir 2 oz Troy and Son’s Oak Reserve Whiskey with 1 1/2 tsp Jo Snow *Cherry & Thyme Syrup. Serve on the rocks, top with a couple splashes of soda water and garnish with an orange wedge and brandied cherries.

*To make your own Cherry & Thyme Syrup: Combine 12 oz. Black Cherry Extract (find it at your local grocery or health food store) and a handful of thyme in 6 oz. of water. Heat to steep for about an hour, then strain and chill.

John recommends infusing the bottle of Troy and Son’s Reserve with one medium orange peel (no pith); after 2 days, remove peel and keep in cool area

    I simply love the design of the house, very simple yet so elegant. Very much suitable for those type of people who loves nature type of ambiance.
