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


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.
