The Macdonald Windsor Hotel is marking the celebration of Great British Beef Week with an unusual menu item—not food, but a meat drink. The Whisky Steak cocktail is made by soaking a strip of 21-day aged sirloin steak in a base of Monkey Shoulder blended malt scotch whisky. This unusual infusion is balanced out by a homemade rosemary syrup and freshly ground black pepper, which rounds out the sweet and savory flavors.

For those who are wary about sipping back something where meat has been sitting, the Rosemary Gin Steaktini is another option offered at the hotel that serves to cleanse the palate after eating steak.

As a week that pays tribute to the quality of beef that comes out of Britain and raises funds for the farming industry, this is an intriguing way to get people to taste, see and experience beef in a new way.
