Winter Cocktail


Cocktail Glass

Glass Guide- Cocktail Glass

The Winter Cocktail is a classic recipe from the first part of the 1900's that I've adapted for modern spirits. Originally it would use ginger brandy, which is relatively scarce now, but the new Canton ginger liqueur is a perfect substitute and if you cannot find pimento dram another allspice liqueur will do. The Winter Cocktail is a wonderfully warming drink that is one of those gems lost to time but worth the reintroduction.
