Warm Up This Winter

Who says your winter cocktails must be heated to keep you warm? We prefer spice notes, honey, and citrus. We also dare to dive into some ice. Here are three favorites:

Penicillin

"It's a classic, with a blended scotch paired with ginger, honey, lemon, and that smoky Laphroaig misted over the top. It fits so perfectly with the season."

Ingredients:
• 2 oz blended scotch
• 1 oz lemon juice
• .5 oz honey syrup
• .5 oz ginger syrup
• .25 oz Laphroig scotch

Directions:
Shake the blended scotch, lemon juice, and syrups with ice and strain into a double old fashioned glass with a single large ice cube. Pour Laphroig over the back of a bar spoon so that it floats atop the drink, and finish with a lemon wheel.

Winter Margarita

"It's just like a traditional Margarita but with an egg white. And we split be base between reposado tequila and mezcal. It gives you those summer flavors but with the thickness of the body and smoke of the mezcal."

Ingredients:
• 1 oz respado
• 1 oz mezcal
• 1 oz lime juice
• .75 oz simple syrup
• 1 egg white

Directions:
Shake the ingredients without ice then, shake again with ice. Strain into a coupe glass and serve up with a salted rim.

Good Tidings

"With the cranberry and allspice you get those more traditional winter flavors and scents, but it drinks like a tall, easy Collins."

Ingredients:
• 1.5 oz vodka
• 1 oz cointreau
• 1 oz lemon juice
• 1 oz cranberry juice
• 1 barspoon of allspice dram

Directions:
Shake the ingredients with ice. Strain into a collins glass over ice and top with soda. Garnish with a lemon wheel studded with cloves.
