I am a huge fan of signature cocktails - they are an easy way to add a personal touch to any event. Recently Hip Hostess had the pleasure of hosting a Casino Night in an upscale private club in downtown NYC. In true Hip Hostess form, we wanted to incorporate something that was new, unique and memorable. Since the venue provided a full bar, we had an inkling that our male-dominated party would make Scotch the drink of choice. So we decided to put a new spin on the signature cocktail, having it double as our dessert course.
As you may have read earlier on the Hip Hostess blog, we have been experimenting with infused vodka. Recently we had success with a Caramel Infused Vodka and Amber had an epiphany that it would make a delicious White Russian…..she was right! Toward the end of the evening, the servers passed around our signature White Russian. They were made with our homemade Caramel Infused Vodka and served in chocolate shot glasses garnished with lingonberries. The presentation was beautiful, the drink was a success and it was a great way to end the evening. –b
