Morrissey's Lounge & Bistro in The Adelphi Hotel in historic Saratoga Springs is known for the creative cocktails from bar manager/mixologist Tim Everhardt. In Kitchen Raid, Everhardt teaches us how to make an ice cold Martini and classic Manhattan, but here he shares his Mull It Over in which Empire rye from Albany Distilling Co. is paired with the seasonal aromatics of mulled wine, brightened with orange and orgeat.

|1 1/2 ounces rye whiskey (e.g. Albany Distilling Co. Empire rye)|
|3/4 ounce orange juice|
|1/4 ounce orgeat (or almond syrup)|
|1 1/2 ounces cold mulled wine|
TIP! * If you don't have orgeat (almond liqueur), you can substitute almond syrup, or make a simple syrup (1:1 water and sugar) simmered with a few drops of vanilla or almond essence from your kitchen cabinet.
