#DOTW: The Seductress

Well, well, well. Seductress. Sounds mysterious. Turns out that in this case it’s just a yummy cocktail! I just recently had so much wine during Restaurant Week here in New York, I was craving a good old Whiskey drink. Add lemon juice and red wine, and I’m game! Enjoy this delicious and classy beverage!



What you’ll need:

  • 1 1/2 oz Knob Creek (or quality Bourbon of your choice)
  • 1 oz fresh lemon juice
  • simple syrup
  • Pinot Noir float

Combine Knob Creek, lemon juice and a dash of simple syrup (you decide the amount of simple syrup, depending on how sweet you like it) in a Martini shaker with ice. Give it a good shake, then pour over ice. Top off with Pinot Noir. Garnish with lemon peel if so knob desired.

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!
