Five Holiday Cocktails to Boost Holiday Spirits
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.
The Kentucky Pilgrim Recipe
- 1.5 oz. Wild Turkey Thanksgiving Infusion (see below)
- 1 oz. lemon juice
- 0.5 oz. Maraschino liqueur
- 0.5 oz. demerara syrup
Warm cocktail directions: Mix all ingredients in a mug and add 3 oz. hot water. Stir and garnish with a wide lemon disc twist.
Wild Turkey Thanksgiving InfusionIn a wide-mouthed glass infusion jar, place 1 liter of Wild Turkey 101 and two barspoons of cardamom seeds. Close and leave in a dark, cool place for one day. Strain out cardamom and add 1.5 cups dried unsweetened cranberries and three sticks of cinnamon. Close and leave for another two days, agitating once per day.
