Mr. October it’s called, although we made it in February. This elegant cocktail by Timothy Miner is best seen from above, as it’s garnished with freshly grated nutmeg. With that nutmeg floating on top of this yellow cocktail, we thought it almost looks like some kind of planet or celestial body. Maybe even the sun?
We love the use of spices in this drink. The nutmeg adds a real earthy tone to the whole creation, while the cinnamon syrup contributes with a wintery note. Then there is the very potent allspice dram and the vanilla notes from the Galliano. A lot going on at once, and still it works so wonderfully together!
