If you’re throwing a cocktail party, don’t forget the High-Jinx.
That’s the special cocktail created for this year’s San Antonio Cocktail Conference, which continues through Sunday.
In a sea of cocktails, why does this potent potable stand out? Imagine the smooth, silky nature of Monkey Shoulder Scotch mixed with the brightness of Solerno blood orange liqueur, lemon juice and grenadine balanced with sweet orgeat before being finished off with a fresh slice of orange.
The cocktail is a bright pinkish orange that glows when served on the rocks.
You can make the High-Jinx as a punch to serve your party. Just remember to vary the proportion of the ingredients you use. A little orgeat goes a long way, and you may want to hold off on the club soda until you ladle up each serving.
1 1/2 ounces Monkey Shoulder Scotch Whisky
1/2 ounce Solerno
3/4 ounce lemon juice
3/4 ounce pomegranate grenadine
3/4 ounce orgeat
Stir together and pour over ice. Top with club soda. Garnish with orange.
Makes 1 cocktail.
