Avec Neige

PHOTOS BY MICHAEL PIAZZA / SYTLED BY EMMET KELTY

SERVES 1

1½ ounces GrandTen Medford Rum
¾ ounce Benedictine*
¾ ounce lemon juice
1 dash Angostura bitters

Combine in a mixing glass, add ice, shake lightly and pour over fresh ice in a rocks glass. Garnish with nutmeg.

* Benedictine is one of my favorite winter mixing ingredients. Its deep ginger, clove and orange tones offer great spice. In a pinch, substitute Grand Marnier.
