A “Miss Fisher’s Mystery” Cocktail

My very favorite show is Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, and since her favorite spirit is whisky, I thought I’d make a whisky cocktail for her with ingredients that are a little tricky to place.

There’s whisky, of course, but I used 3 kinds of sweet flavors that mysteriously blend together, but never make the cocktail too sweet.

To create a garnish like this, you’ll just need some pretty dry flowers, a few maple leaves, a little thread to tie them together and very steady fingers. I love combining dry and fresh flowers and greenery for garnishes. It makes my cocktails look so exciting.
