Highlighting Smoke & Mirrors

If you’re “looking” for a fancy cocktail to serve this season, then Smoke & Mirrors, from Bill Norris of Midnight Cowboy in Austin, Texas, is the real deal despite the name. Sherry, Benedictine and scotch combine to form a unique flavor profile that might entice even non-scotch drinkers to sip and savor, and served up in a sherry glass, it is the cocktail to begin an elegant dinner party or toast the one who lucked out on the best White Elephant gift. Don’t be fooled by its petite size, which is part of the illusion; it’s stronger than it appears.
