#DOTW: Beggar’s Banquet

It’s always a bit difficult to find great whiskey cocktails, simply because I don’t drink it all that often. But then I find one, I make it, I try it, and it always comes out delicious! It’s all in the ingredients. This following cocktail asked for an English Pale Ale, but I couldn’t find one, so I substituted it with an IPA at the recommendation of the sales person, and it worked just fine! It was yummy…..



What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz Bullleit Bourbon (or quality Bourbon of your choice)
  • 1/4 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 oz Maple syrup
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • Old Speckled Hen beer (I substituted with IPA)

Combine Bourbon, lemon juice, Maple syrup and bitters in a cocktail shaker over ice, give a few good shakes. Pour into a highball glass filled with ice. Top off with beer.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
