It come to my attention ’tis the holiday season and we’re all entirely too somber and sober in our off work hours. Since Impish has already laid claim to the “the beatings will continue until morale improves” approach, I thought I’d try a different tact to see if I couldn’t generate some (temporary at least) holiday cheer by offering some recipes for holiday cheer of the drinkable kind.
These recipes have all been liberated from the good people over at Food TV.com. I’ll post one ever couple of days for you to try. Don’t forget to make me one too when you do!
* 3/4 oz. Bailey’s Irish Cream
* 3/4 oz. DeKuyper Buttershots liqueur or butterscotch schnapps
* 1/2 oz. Jagermeister or anise-flavored liqueur
* 1/2 oz. Goldschlager cinnamon schnapps
* 1/2 oz. half-and-half
* Lemon zest
* Raw sugar, to coat glass rim

In a cocktail shaker with ice add Irish Cream, butterscotch liqueur, anise liqueur, schnapps and half-and-half. Zest lemon over shaker. Shake and set aside. Sugar the rim of a martini glass by dipping glass into a saucer of water, followed by a saucer of raw sugar. Strain drink into glass. Garnish with a pinch of cinnamon
