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.
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
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).
