Glasses: Crate & Barrel; Shaker: Bed Bath & Beyond; Cinnamon (my favorite brand): Williams-Sonoma
TGIF! Who’s ready for a cocktail after this week? For our wedding, our venue was BYOB, so we were able to fully customize our bar. We decided to have a full bar with two signature cocktails. So, in the process of picking two signature drinks that fit us, we taste tested quite a few. This recipe, found here on Dessert for Two (modified a little bit), was not one we served, but was tasty enough to share here.
I like no fuss cocktails. Ones that don’t have ten different ingredients and that I can easily make with what I have in the fridge or pantry on a random night. So, with fig jam, one lime, and cinnamon, this was simple. I didn’t add the additional sugar that the original recipe called for (the jam sweetened it up plenty and I try to cut too much added sugar out), and I surely don’t keep lemon balm on hand, so those were left out. This cocktail was refreshing for a whiskey drink, which can be heavy and a bit overpowering. It has a nice sweet and spicy warmth to it. One thing to note, the jam will separate out if the drink sits and the texture isn’t as smooth as because of the jam. But, that didn’t stop us from enjoying these!
