The Guild: A Toast to Cocktails

Let’s face it; cocktails are delicious. At least they are for those of us who choose to actually imbibe, but if you’re not into that kind of thing, have no fear, I’m sure I’ll do some kind of awesome mocktail recipes at some point in the near future.

This cocktail is actually one I had come up with a few years ago and had posted on the old FoodStoned site way back in the day. So if it looks familiar, it’s because it probably is. It was originally concocted as an homage to the Northstar Bartender’s Guild (which I’m not really sure is still a thing, so there’s a bit of nostalgia for ya!). I was feeling particularly inspired after a little cocktail soiree they had thrown and felt like “inventing” my own little cocktail. If you’ve tried it before,  great, if not, give it a try for the very first time because it’s delicious and it’s the perfect time of year to sip on

Regardless of whether or not you’ve tried this before, you should really give it another go or for your very first time because this drink is delicious and it’s the perfect time of year to sip on a little something that highlights whiskey, cinnamon, and citrus all stirred together in a blaze of wintery glory.
