This recipe came to me via
@thecocktailgeek. His enthusiasm for it was so palpable: “the best drink I’ve had all year” that not only did it convince me (an averred mulled wine avoider) to purchase a bottle of Professor Cornelius Ampleforth’s Christmas Mulled Cup and add it to pretty much every drink I made this month, it also drove me back into the arms of a trusty old favourite – the Vieux Carré.
The recipe was also featured last week on
@MasterofMalt’s excellent #masterofcocktails series, so I’m a little late to the game with this, but boy is it a good one:
Combine equal parts whiskey, cognac and sweet vermouth, half a measure of
Christmas Mulled Cup and a sploosh of Peychaud’s bitters in a mixing glass. Add ice and stir well for sixty seconds.
Strain into a chilled old fashioned glass, over ice.
Garnish with a twist of orange peel (
Christmas tincture optional).
