DOTW: Summer Breeze

When you think of a refreshing summer drink, do you think of whiskey? No, me either. But if you’re anything like me, you have a bunch of friends that really, really like whiskey! If you want to fix them something on a warm summer night (or whenever), then you gotta come up with something other than Whiskey Sour. So, I investigated, and I found this gem. It’s simple, the ingredients are not hard to find, and it is absolutely delicious. Perfect for a summer day with friends and family (over 21 lol).

What you’ll need:

In a cocktail shaker add ice, Knob Creek and Cointreau, shake well. In a highball glass line a slice of orange on the side of the glass, then add ice. Pour the ingredients of the cocktail shaker into the glass, then top it off with Schweppes Ginger Ale.

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!
