My handy dandy cocktail book, 1001 Cocktails: 1001 Recipes for the Perfect Drink (Hardcover) ~ Alex Barker (Compiler) gives the recipe for the Cosmopolitan on page 178. I followed the lead in Alex Barker’s book, tweaked it for a particular Canadian Whisky (White Owl Whisky) and came up with what I call Country Roads:
2 ounces Canadian Whisky (I suggest White Owl Whisky)
1 ounce Cointreau
1 ounce Cranberry juice
1/2 ounce Lime Juice
Shake in a metal shaker with ice and strain into a chilled glass.
Garnish with a flamed Orange zest
The Canadian Whisky (White Owl Whisky) adds depth to the cocktail; but does not change the overall essence of the original .
Please Remember, the aim of my blog is not to encourage you to drink more, it is to encourage you to drink better!!
