Local, seasonal cocktails sound hard to come by, until you realize you live in a city that’s surrounded by sweet corn and tomatoes. White Pike Whiskey, located in the Finger Lakes, does all the farming, milling, distilling and bottling to create their smooth, clean whiskey. Below, Steven Ljubicic from White Pike gives us his recipe for the perfect fall cocktail, the Bloody Mary.
White Pike Bloody Mary
McClure’s Bloody Mary Mix is not too heavy with tomato, and it has a touch of pickle brine and natural spices. The sweetness of the local corn adds the perfect contrast to the spice that’s in the mix.
