Wyoming Hot Pot

Posted in : Cocktails on by : TetonTrekker Tags: , , ,

June 14th is National Bourbon Day!

Last summer while at the local Peoples Market, I visited a booth that sold bitters made locally, Bear Root Bitters. I'm now a huge fan and I have several of their varieties but the Habanero Ginger is my favorite and I wanted to find a cocktail to fit it into.

I looked up what cocktails used bitters and the Champagne Cocktail caught my eye. I switched the cognac to my favorite whiskey, Wyoming Whiskey. I didn't like the texture from the sugar cube so I went with simple syrup.

After much experimentation with booze balances, garnishes, rimmers, etc I had a brainstorm over a hot cherry and came up with the Habanero Cherry concoction. Perhaps it was the cocktails speaking to me, but it came out perfect for this cocktail. I hope you enjoy.
