This episode is our attempt at a stress free holiday guide. We're talking all about ways we're hoping to reduce stress this season, including some go-to gift suggestions, all while sipping on this twist on a classic cocktail.
Clove-Scented Sidecar (adapted slightly from Shutterbean)
makes 2 drinks
- 6 tablespoons sugar, divided
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 lemon, cut into chunks
- 1 orange
- 3/4 cup whiskey
Mix 2 tbsp. sugar and ground cloves on a small plate. Rub one lemon chunk around the rims of two cocktail glasses. Turn rims in the clove sugar.
Cut orange into two slices about 1/4 in. thick; cut slices in half. Put lemon chunks, orange slices, and 4 tbsp. of the clove-sugar in a cocktail shaker. Using a wooden spoon, muddle together the fruit and sugar until fruit is broken up.
Add about 1 cup ice and whiskey to cocktail shaker. With lid securely fastened, shake vigorously to blend, then strain into the sugared glasses.
