Tipple Tuesday: Happy Christmas

Charlotte Voisey, mixologist extraordinaire over at William Grant & Sons, was on CBS’s The Early Show last week. She mixed up five Christmas drinks that will help you and your guests get in the holiday spirit (pun indeed intended).

Here is Charlotte’s Ginger Figgle. What does figgle mean? We don’t know, but it sure is fun to say.

Ginger Figgle

Interpretation of a screwdriver (“fancy screwdriver”)

2 Pieces Of Ginger Root (each the size of a quarter) OR 1/2 oz Ginger Syrup

2 Large Bar Spoons Of Rich Fig Preserves

1 oz Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice


In the order above, combine ingredients and shake very well.
Serve up in a cocktail glass and garnish with a slice of fresh fig OR orange wheel.
