This post is a part of a series that will profile participants in the Hiram Walker Gingerbread Cocktail Competition and their drink entries. The winner of the contest will be announced the week of Thanksgiving.
Meaghan Dorman is relatively new to the world of blogging, though she’s no rookie in the cocktail world. A former bartender, Meaghan is a spirits writer based in New York City. At Spirit Me Away, she’s kind enough to share the details of her fabulous Carrie Bradshaw-esque life of late night cocktail parties with the rich & famous and exclusive tastings with some of the country’s best mixologists with envious readers such as myself who live in decidedly less fabulous places (such as the Insurance capital of the U.S…thrills!).
Meaghan was kind enough to contribute her skills and creativity to the Hiram Walker Gingerbread Cocktail Competition with this lil’ number—The Autumn Gingerbread Flip.
The Autumn Gingerbread Flip by Meaghan Dorman:
1.5 oz farmer’s market apple cider
1.5 oz Sazerac Rye Whiskey
.5 oz Hiram Walker Gingerbread Liqueur
.5 oz egg white
Rinse a cocktail glass with Cherry Heering liqueur. Pour all ingredients into a mixing glass and dry shake vigorously for about 10 seconds. Add ice and shake again. Strain into rinsed cocktail glass. Garnish with a flamed orange zest. Enjoy!
Thanks Meaghan, for a tasty submission that’s relatively easy to make (just watch yourselves when flaming that orange zest!). Make sure and check out Meaghan’s blog for the latest in NYC’s spirits scene.
