What type of whiskey is best for an Amber Moon cocktail?
A spice-heavy rye whiskey works well with the Amber Moon cocktail, but ultimately, the choice of whiskey would come down to personal taste.
Can I use powdered cinnamon instead of a pinch?
Yes, powdered cinnamon can be used but it might not dissolve completely and could change the texture of the drink. Stick to a cinnamon stick for best results.
Is there a non-alcoholic version of the Amber Moon cocktail?
You can replace whiskey with non-alcoholic substitutes like tea or non-alcoholic distilled spirits. Remember to adjust the sweetness accordingly!
Is this cocktail suitable for vegans?
The egg white in the Amber Moon cocktail makes it unsuitable for vegans. You could use alternatives like aquafaba (chickpea water) for a vegan version.
How important are the dashes of Angostura bitters?
Angostura bitters give a complex blend of tropical flavors and spices to the Amber Moon. While you can still enjoy the cocktail without them, they certainly add depth to the taste.
