Went for a slight twist on the Ancho Reyes Old Fashioned posted previously. Swapped the orange bitters for cranberry because…. fall is coming…. The previous post of the Ancho Reyes Old Fashioned:
I wanted a nice fall cocktail for this afternoon and mulled cider sounded perfect. The only issue is that it is still warm enough to sit outside with a cool cocktail so I went with a cold version.
A spiked homemade hot mulled cider was just what we needed to cap off the week. There is nothing like heating up some store-bought apple cider and adding your own cinnamon sticks, clove, and some orange slices to make the house smell like a comfy fall day. Adding some booze just makes it that much…
Decided it was time to try something new with our Pisco Porton that would go well with the hot weather we’ve been having. We started with a basic pisco sour recipe from Epicurious.
We decided to continue to experiment with the Ancho Reyes liqueur I picked up Friday. When looking at Ancho Reyes website to get ideas and they have an old fashioned recipe posted. Well, we like old fashioneds…
For tonight I decided to try an autumn Manhattan. A nice tweak on the traditional Manhattan.
Looking for a way to use our new cranberry liqueur we found a recipe from Cointreau’s website that looked promising. We swapped out the Cranberry Preserves for our Cranberry Liqueur and, I must say, I was quite pleased.
Trinidad Sour – This cocktail sounds quite strange but I assure you it is worth a try with a bold spicy / bitter flavor it is one you won’t soon forget.
