It doesn’t take much for me to find a quick and easy theme and throw a dinner party around it. In this instance the gold rim of these cocktail glasses provided all the impetus Andy and I needed to surround ourselves with four of our favorite people. The earliest hints of the upcoming holiday season glittered in the background as I served up a few Ginger Gold Rushes, recipe below.
GINGER GOLD RUSH
1 ½ OZ. BOURBON (BLACK MAPLE HILL)
1 ½ OZ. GINGER LIQUEUR (CANTON)
½ OZ. FRESH LEMON JUICE
SERVE WITH CITRUS TWIST.
Of course the real secret to a good dinner party is not in the cocktails or hors d’oeuvre, not in the tablescape or entree, but always, and only, in the guests. Which is what made this gathering one of the best.
