Xmas Cocktail of the Week – Fairytale of New York December 12, 2016

Christmas party number seven done and it’s not even Christmas Eve yet. Feeling like you need a break from rich Christmas indulgence already? Our new favourite Christmas seasonal, Fairytale of New York, gives you just that.

A festive take on a New York Sour (a classic whiskey sour cocktail with red wine), it still incorporates festive spice whilst giving you something more refreshing than a rich, creamy cocktail. We blend Christmas spices and cinnamon sugar to balance out the sharpness of the sour, and top it with mulled wine for a little bit of luxury. You still need a little indulgence…it is Christmas after all.

Ingredients

35ml lemon juice

10 ml sugar syrup

1 tsp cinnamon sugar

A pinch of nutmeg

25ml Rye Whiskey (we use Rittenhouse)

25ml Brandy (we use Martell)

15ml egg white

35ml mulled wine

Method

In a boston shaker, shake all the ingredients together, except the mulled wine. Strain the ingredients into a rocks glass with ice and top with the mulled wine.

Garnish with edible snowflakes and glitter spray – definitely not optional!!

Enjoy (with Christmas songs).
