#DOTW: Winter Warmer

Four more weeks until Christmas! So,of course that means I’ll be posting cocktails that will be suitable for your holiday dinner or parties. This weeks delicious drink is made with cognac, which gives an earthy flavor, but of course you can use whatever liquor you like. I really, really love this recipe though. It’ll warm you through and through.



What you’ll need:

  • 1 1/2 oz Remy 1738 (or quality cognac of your choice)
  • 1 oz (brown) Creme de Cacao
  • 1 oz Half & Half
  • dash of fresh nutmeg
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • cinnamon sugar

Combine Remy 1738, Creme de Cacao, Half & Half and nutmeg in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into a Martini glass that’s rimmed with cinnamon sugar. Garnish with a cinnamon stick.

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!
