Down-home goodness

Wow, lots of cocktails that need to be blogged about so I will keep this brief. The week started out at the new barbecue joint Hill Country, which was so good it made me feel a little homesick. See, I’m from Philly, but my Granny is from the South (Stanardsville, VA to be exact) and holiday meals where filled with green bean casserole, cornbread, sweet potato mash, mac-n-cheese and deviled eggs. All very fattening and all very good. And that is just what you’ll find at Hill Country. But my favorite was what I washed it all down with. This was SO good:

2 oz. Maker’s Mark
1 oz. Southern Comfort
Orange juice
Splash of almond extract

Pour Maker’s Mark and SoCo in a highball glass over ice. Fill to the top with OJ. Top off with a splash of almond extract.
