I love people’s expression whenever they smell or taste anything “holiday.” It could be the smell of a pumpkin spice candle, the first sip of warm, homemade mulled wine, etc. Their shoulders drop a little and they let out a sigh that says, “you’re home now, and everything is going to be alright.”
I figured a Scotch whisky like Harleston Green would blend seamlessly with the fall/winter flavors of mulled wine while the amaro and apple brandy sing beautifully in the background.
Going into this holiday season five-thousand miles away from my family, this cocktail is my little, “Home Away From Home.”
