Smokey Robinson

November 19, 2011 (Day 235) — Smokey Robinson

Some background on Smokey Robinson (from Wikipedia):

William “Smokey” Robinson, Jr. (born February 19, 1940) is an American R&B singer-songwriter, record producer, and former record executive. Robinson is one of the primary figures associated with Motown, second only to the company’s founder, Berry Gordy. Robinson’s consistent commercial success and creative contributions to the label have earned him the title “King of Motown.” As an original member of Motown Records’ first vocal group The Miracles and as a solo artist, Robinson delivered many U.S. and U.K. Top 40 hits for Motown between 1960 and 1987. He also served as the company’s vice president from 1961 to 1988. He is currently married to Frances Robinson.

Motown had a big impact on me growing up. So naturally, it only seems right that I should dedicate a cocktail to him.

Smokey Robinson

  • 3 oz Fulton’s Pumpkin Pie Cream Liqueur
  • 2 oz blended scotch whiskey

Combine the ingredients in a rocks glass filled with cubed ice and stir well. Garnish with a cinnamon stick.

Simple, but very delicious.
