A Couple of Cocktails
January 06, 2012
On my FineCooking.com cocktail blog, I've listed two wintry cocktails over the last two weeks. The first was created by Willie Shine for 1534. It's a simple cognac-based tropical style drink using Disarrono where orgeat might normally go.
That recipe is here.
The second one is from David Delaney Jr. of Worcester, Massachusetts. It was a finalist in this year's Angostura cocktail challenge, and contains a bunch of things that seem like it would taste like pie: cherry, cinnamon, allspice, apple, and maple syrup.

Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a dehydrated, cinnamon-dusted lemon wheel.
The full post for that drink, including the explanation of the name, is here.
