Ginger's Smoky Wooden Leg
In Season 3, Episode 14, TOW Phoebe’s Ex-Partner, Chandler dates Ginger — and we soon find out two things: 1) Joey’s dated her before, and 2) Ginger’s got a wooden leg. We find out later in the episode that things didn’t end well for Joey and Ginger — he accidentally threw her wooden leg into a fire!
We knew we had to include a smoky factor in this week’s beverage, inspired by Ginger’s (unfortunately) smoking wooden leg. Hence, the stick of cinnamon we lit on fire in order to flavor our signature beverages! We took notes from the Wake n’ Bake cocktail — rye whiskey, coffee, maple syrup — and put our spin on it.
GINGER’S SMOKY WOODEN LEG
1.5 oz rye whiskey
6 dashes black walnut bitters
10 dashes ginger bitters
½ tsp maple syrup
2 ounces cold brew coffee
Cinnamon sticks (and a lighter/match)
Light a cinnamon stick, then blow out (you may need to light it once or twice to get a sufficient amount of smoke coming off). Cover the cinnamon stick with your glass and let it sit for a minute or two to give the smoke a chance to build up in the glass. Meanwhile, combine the rest of the ingredients over ice in a cocktail shaker and shake. Upend the smoky glass, fill with ice, and pour the concoction over it. Serve garnished with the smoky cinnamon stick.
