Autumn Whisky Zing

by James Stevenson

Since it’s October and we are transitioning into heartier flavors I decided to use a few in a cocktail creation today. Monin make a delicious Spiced Brown Sugar Syrup that adds a kick that compliments the rest of the flavors in this drink. Items like cinnamon, chocolate bitters, vanilla bean yogurt and a smoky whisky may not usually be combined but somehow they come together so deliciously. The weird ingredient in this cocktail is the vanilla bean yogurt, which balances out the spiciness and smokiness of the drink and adds a bit of tanginess and creaminess.
