#DOTW: Spiced Orange Brandy Spritzer

Did you have your Vitamin C today? Not only is it a helpful tool in the fight against Covid-19, but just in general it’s helpful against the common flu, or even just a regular cold. It’s freezing out, snowing, raining, don’t get caught getting sick this winter. But it’s also Saturday, so I don’t see any rules against combining some freshly squeezed orange juice with some good old booze. Cognac to be exact. Not sure if that’s helpful, but having a few Russian friends in my circle, I have heard whispers of support…. It’s worth trying…..

What you’ll need:

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, Hennessey, orange juice, Allspice berries and cinnamon sticks. Shake well. Fill a cocktail glass with ice and strain liquid contents of the shaker into the glass. Top off with ginger ale. Garnish with a slice of orange 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!
