One for the Weekend: Rocky Mountain Ginger Crisp

Like red cups at Starbucks and tinsel in Main Street shop windows, the Hiram Walker seasonal display in your local liquor store is a surefire sign that the holidays are on their way (though I personally refuse to speak of Santa until my Thanksgiving turkey is fully digested). Perhaps you’ve seen these Gingerbread and Pumpkin Spice bottles decked-out and prominently placed at your local retailer? Do yourself a favor and pick up a bottle or 10 for this season because I’m going to be hitting you with some great cocktails to share with friends and family.

For instance, several of you may be kicking back with a nice cocktail this evening (TGIF!) and may I suggest Cheri Loughlin’s Rocky Mountain Ginger Crisp? Spicy seasonal goodness!  You’re welcome!

    This sounds wonderful, I can’t wait to make it myself. I’m going to try it with the new Seagram’s 7 Dark Honey as my choice of whiskey. I think the honey might add a nice sweetness to it. Thanks!
