Craft cocktail menus continue to reflect unique winter flavors (can anyone say maple syrup?) and January’s issue of Sauce Magazine shares the same sentiment. Pear, honey and rosemary were among those used in the mag’s featured cocktail recipes, but seasonal inspirations like Pumpkin Spice and Gingerbread also got a nod.
Among the recipes featured were a few Hiram Walker cocktails: Pumpkin Pie, Nutty Pumpkin, Gingerbread Cookie, and one I haven’t yet tried, the Gingerbread Cosmopolitan. The cold-weather cosmo looks to boast a nice profile of spices such as vanilla and brown sugar mixed with the citrus notes of the flavored vodka. Here is the recipe:
- 2 parts ABSOLUT Citron Vodka
- ½ part Hiram Walker Gingerbread Liqueur
- 1 part Hiram Walker Triple Sec
- 1 part Cranberry Juice
