After all the holiday feasting and feting, who couldn’t use a little pick-me-up to get through the work week? Here’s a cocktail from the folks at Kings County Distillery and Marlow & Sons restaurant in Williamsburg that’s just right for our we’d-rather-be-baking-cookies-than-sitting-at-this-desk mood (find it and other great recipes in Edible Brooklyn: The Cookbook):
makes 1 drink
2 1/2 ounces Kings County Moonshine, or use another corn whiskey
1/2 ounce Dolin Vermouth de Chambery Blanc, or use another white vermouth
1 thin strip lemon peel for garnish
In a mixing glass, stir the whiskey and vermouth. Pour into a rocks glass filled with ice. Top with a lemon peel.
