Sounds oddly salacious, don’t it? Thanks to Nancy of The Backyard Bartender for hosting this Mixology Monday. Her theme is Some Like it Hot—“make anything you want to, so long as it’s hot.” OK—I’m feeling a little worn out from the recent adventure in New York so here’s an easy one. David Wondrich says a toddy with lemon peel is a skin. Vanilla syrup sounded soothing after reading about Tiare’s Vanilla Smash.
Vanilla Whiskey Skin
2 oz Rittenhouse rye (100 proof)
2 tsp vanilla syrup
4 oz hot water
Combine in a heat-proof glass. SOURCE: ADAPTED FROM BASIC WHISKEY SKIN, DAVID WONDRICH, IMBIBE!
Some notes on my cocktail life in San Francisco—mostly thoughts about classics or an idea I’m working on. Once in a while, I even go out and drink someone else’s liquor. (I try to take pictures to prove it.)
