With summer officially out, it’s time for fall cocktails, which means bringing back darker spirits (hi, whiskey!) and seasonal ingredients. Our in-house mixologist recently revealed her new fall/winter cocktails and the results are delicious.
“For this menu, I wanted to go back to the classics: simple and refined, while still incorporating bold, seasonal flavors. Nearly every cocktail on this menu is a riff on a standard – a mule, French 75, an Old Fashioned, and even a vodka tonic — each infused with strong spice, herb, tart, or savory notes. As we drift into colder months, we tend to gravitate towards warming drinks, and I wanted to create a feeling of warmth without using heat. You’ll find a variety of baking spices and smoky flavors, as well as ingredients that are reminiscent of winter holidays and snowy nights.”
An improved vodka tonic, incorporating smoke and spice. “I love the combination of sage and anything smoky; the charred lime juice with a hint of smoked chili creates a cocktail that’s both well-rounded and light.”
Toasted walnut green tea and cranberry bitters come together to create a tart and refreshing cocktail.
