ADVENT CALENDAR: FAIRYTALE OF NEW YORK

"Fairytale of New York" starts the cocktail advent calendar. This is my favorite Christmas song, so I thought it would get me in the holiday spirit. The grapefruit peel of the Empire State Building helped complete the theme.

For the drink:

-1 1/2 oz silver rum (BLY

-1/2 oz Espirit de June

-3/4 oz fresh lime juice

-1/3 oz simple syrup

-1 bar spoon orange blossom water

-2 dashes orange bitters (Regan's)

-1 1/2 oz seltzer


Garnish:

Grapefruit peel


Glassware:

Tom Collins glass


Add the drink ingredients except the seltzer to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake for ten secons. Pour through a Hawthorne and fine mesh strainer. Top with seltzer. Garnish.
