Whiskey & Stilettos
I've been trying to figure out how to "Italianize" a whiskey cocktail for-ev-er and the fabulous Aine from peasoupeats has done it!
Her delicious twist on the classic Stiletto cocktail is simply brilliant. If you're curious about how she came up with it, check out her recipe post. Her blog is one of my faves.
What a great way to spice up your Valentine's night!

1 part whiskey
1 part di saronno
3 parts cider
2 parts ginger ale
Firstly, ensure your selected cider and whiskey are vegan friendly. Luckily, Jameson's has the vegan seal of approval. Whew!
Next up make sure the ginger ale and cider are nicely chilled.
Use a champagne flute - it will go perfectly with the stiletto's one should be wearing whilst preparing!
Measure out and pour in one shot of whiskey followed by the di saronno. Tip the glass slightly to pour in the chilled cider and then carefully (and slowly) top with the ginger ale.
Serve. Savor. Repeat.
