Along with a lovely drink, I got the song “Waltzing Matilda” stuck in my head. Though, since I only know the chorus, I suppose it could be worse. This is a lovely cocktail for a rainy afternoon. I love the allspice dram and found it to be the perfect accent to a great rye base. It was great to pull out my Averna again, too. If you don’t have a bottle of this, you need to go hit the liquor store soon. Averna is a great multi-purpose amaro. Recipe via Punch.
Although I had to sacrifice my favorite mixing glass for tonight’s cocktail, I dare say it was worth it. Incredibly simple (except for the flaming orange garnish part — still mastering that), and really tasty. This might be a good drink for trying out new whisk(e)ys. Via Imbibe Unfiltered.
Starting a little early today because it’s Sunday, I am waiting on laundry, and I couldn’t wait to try the New York maple syrup my boss sent for Christmas. Just 1/4 oz to replace the sugar cube in this High West Bourye old fashioned makes a lovely drink.
A bit too tart/sour for my taste, but still a lovely starting point. This seems like another great way to use my creme de mure.
