The Tootsie Roll is an uncomplicated cocktail with surprising ingredients that does exactly what it promises: it tastes like a Tootsie Roll candy, in cocktail form.
The Tootsie Roll is the invention of mixology consultant Aisha Sharpe, and it’s a lesson in the magic of ingredient harmony. The chocolate bitters are a given, of course (and no, mole bitters won’t work here) – but it’s the pairing of peppery rye whiskey and roasted-raisin Pedro Ximenez sherry that fills in the unexpected flavor of the beloved ten-cent candy.
- 2 parts Rye whiskey
- 1 part Sweet sherry
- 6 dashes Chocolate bitters
Stir all ingredients with ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass. Garnish with brandied cherries on a pick.
