Jingle All The Way ( AKA Christmas Old Fashioned)
What a FUN and festive cocktail! So I had a little fun ( sarcasm) trying to figure out how all the craft cocktail mixologists get their lemons so pretty. I spent an entire morning soaking lemon slices in bourbon and trying to light them on fire. Nope. Then I put sugar all over the lemon slices and tried to torch them with a lighter. Nope. What finally worked was putting sugar all over the lemon slices, then placing them under the broiler in my air fryer. SCORE!!! It worked. After I successfully got a few lemon slices for garnish I put them in the fridge for later when I made this drink. My son told me I could have accomplished the lemon garnish with a chef’s torch, so I will be asking Santa for one!
