The Ugly Sweater

Posted on: Saturday, December 24, 2011

Heading to a holiday party, Kara, decked out in a gaudy sequined poinsettia top with shoulder pads and Marni, dressed in a red knit cardigan covered in tiny Santa’s and snowballs, were committed to the Ugly Sweater theme. Walking up Beacon Hill, we brainstormed a signature drink for the old-fashioned, warming flavor with a tacky garnish. Using the base recipe of a Rusty Nail, the addition of one of our favorite fizz components, ginger beer, plus the quintessential colorful ribbon candy, we concocted The Ugly Sweater.

The Ugly Sweater

1 1/2 oz Scotch
1/2 oz Drambuie liqueur
1 1/2 oz ginger beer
ribbon candy

In an ice-filled glass, pour the Scotch, Drambuie, stir to combine, then top with ginger beer. Top with a piece or two of ribbon candy.

Oh what fun!
