tastingtable.com announces the Best Cocktail of 2011

 

 

Wildest Redhead

 

Red-haired Meaghan Dorman, who presides over the cocktails at this Iroquois hotel lair, was insulted that the Wild Redhead, a lemon juice-Cherry Heering cocktail featured in the circa-1970s Jones Complete Bar Guide, didn’t reflect its sassy moniker. Dorman amplified the drink, creating this spicier, boozier version that lives up to her brazen expectations.

 

 Make It At Home

 

Ice
¾ ounce fresh lemon juice
½ ounce honey
¼ ounce St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram
1½ ounces blended Scotch
¼ ounce Cherry Heering

In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine the lemon juice, honey, dram and Scotch and shake vigorously. Drizzle the Cherry Heering over ice (ideally one large cube) in a rocks glass and then strain the cocktail into the glass. Serve.
