The Kentucky PilgrimIf you can't decide whether to serve a hot or cold cocktail at your holiday festivities, why not do both? This Ehrmann-invented drink can be served either way, but plan ahead, because the cardamom, cinnamon and cranberry infusion that creates that holiday spice takes a good day to reach full flavor.
Ehrmann suggests the pilgrim as a nice holiday meal aperitif, or as a fine cocktail in whatever bar or party setting suits you.
