#DOTW: Holiday Sauce

Just a few more days until Thanksgiving! Is menu finished? All your shopping done? Are you getting ready to start cooking? All invitations delivered? How about alcohol? Are you serving wine or cocktails? Just in case, here’s another great idea for a holiday drink! It’s tart and yummy!

What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz Remy 1738 (or quality cognac of your choice)
  • 1/2 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 to 1 1/2 tbsp canned cranberry sauce
  • splash of orange bitters

Combine all ingredients in a martini shaker with ice. Shake well and pour in to a Martini glass rimmed with equal parts sugar and cinnamon. Garnish with an orange peel.

(You can use your own cranberry sauce of course! If you use canned sauce, heat it, then let it cool again. It’s a little hard liquifying it straight out of the can!)

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!
