Joanne Gallinghouse’s Favorite libation was scotch.
To celebrate her, we’ve come up with some smokin’, dazzling, marvelous and sophisticated whiskey drink potions…perfect for any diva!
Smokin’ Stiletto –
2 ounces whiskey
½ ounce simple syrup
2 dashes Angostura bitters
2 sprigs of dried rosemary
Add the whiskey, simple syrup and bitters to a glass filled with ice. Add a piece of orange peel into the mix. Light the rosemary sprigs on fire and hold the flaming rosemary over the glass, but don’t put it in the glass. Cover with a cocktail shaker for 10 seconds. The flame will go out, leaving the drink infused with smokiness.
