The Red Rooster Mistletoe Recipe

By admin |

Here’s a recipe for the latest holiday cocktail from Red Rooster Harlem. Created by mixologist Lonn Coupel-Coward, this festive Champagne cocktail has three simple ingredients that can be substituted for that New Year’s Eve Champagne toast. The Mistletoe calls for a splash of cinnamon-infused bourbon and to make your own simply drop some cinnamon sticks into an air sealed jar of bourbon for a couple weeks and voila- you own homemade infused bourbon.
