…and I am going to help you remember them with a fancy cocktail that you are going to have this evening (or better yet, this afternoon). This Clever Little Cocktail is pretty darned festive. If you are going back to work tomorrow, take a moment later today to remember that yes, the holidays really did happen, and allow this wintry cocktail to take you back a day or two. And let’s not forget…New Year’s is coming up! It’s not over!
- 1 oz Calvados (pear and apple based brandy)
- 1 tsp (or to taste) Garam Masala simple syrup (.5 C water, .5 C sugar, 1 tblsp Garam Masala)
- 2 drops orange bitters
- 1 oz rum (like Plantation)
- 1 oz rye whiskey (like Knob Creek)
- 2 oz fresh orange juice
- 1.5 oz pomegranate juice
- 3 tblsp strong black tea
Stir all ingredients and serve over ice. I’m currently appreciating round ice cubes…I’d suggest a bigger cube like this or the square cubes. Let me know how you like it.
