Before you even decide what cocktail you want to make and before you even open the bottle, there’s something about Caledonia’s Barr Hill Gin that you can’t help but notice. And not just with your eyes. It’s the aroma.
There’s something about Tuesday that’s maybe a bit blah. It’s not quite Monday, but it’s definitely not Friday. Why not add some tasty excitement to it with a ticket to Good Spirits on February 28th from 6-9pm? You’d better hurry though, because they are flying. You won’t want to miss out on food and drink from over 50 of the city’s best restaurants and distillers, all for just $45.
This drink is pretty impressive: The Charlie Hustle from Abigail Gullo, who tends at Fort Defiance in Red Hook. “With smokey peat and rosemary,” Gullo wrote to the judges, “it only seemed appropriate to name this after Pete Rose.” Gullo also lights a bit of fresh rosemary on fire, blows it out, and then holds the smoldering sprig inside the glass to give it a second dose of smoke. See, we told you it was impressive.
