The other day my mom asked me if I would make cocktails for Christmas Eve dinner. My response? “Of program! I already bought all the things.” 😀 This time of yr we have so several events and dinners, both impromptu and planned, so I like to be ready.
This cocktail is robust, but quite flavorful. It’;s ideal for people who like to order Manhattans and Previous Fashioneds. It is also what I like to get in touch with “one and carried out”… due to the fact I only need a single to begin feeling ummm “cheerful”.
You offered nevertheless? Here is the recipe:
Vanilla Bean Whiskey Cocktail, serves one
2 ounces vanilla bean infused whiskey
one/2 an ounce Dr. McCillicuddy’;s Intense Raw Vanilla
2 dashes aromatic cocktail bitters
one/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Pour the whiskey, vanilla liqueur, bitters and lemon juice into a cocktail shake with ice. Include a star anise. Shake-shake-shake! Serve in an previous fashioned glass, garnished with star anise and a lemon wedge. Enjoy!
To infuse my whiskey I utilised about half a bottle of whiskey and one particular complete vanilla bean. Let it sit in a dark location for 24-48 hrs and it is prepared! I created a pretty massive batch simply because I thought this would also be fantastic for hot toddies.
I hope you have a fantastic, risk-free and festive vacation! Cheers! Elsie
