#DOTW: Clementine Whiskey Smash

This cocktail is traditionally a Fall drink, but I think this works amazingly well for the first days of spring, fruity and delicious. It’s warming up a little, so clementines and cinnamon seem a natural fit for this change of season. I had a couple last night, and I loved this cocktail immensely….

What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz Macallan (or quality whiskey of your choice)
  • 2 clementines
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • splash of water
  • cinnamon stick

Peel the clementines and separate the segments. Smash the fruit very well in a cocktail shaker. Add ice, sugar, whiskey and a splash of water and shake very well to extract as much juice as possible. Fill a glass with ice and strain the mixture into the glass. Garnish with more clementine segments and 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!
