Smoke & Spice Cocktail

Smoke & Spice cocktail

This year, spice up your holiday drink routine and mix up this smoky cider-based sipper. Mulled wine and eggnog are wonderful, but we think it’s time for something fresher. The Smoke & Spice is packed full of apple pie flavor cut by our favorite barrel smoked maple syrup. After you serve up a few batches of these,  no one will care if the weather outside is frightful. Plus, who doesn’t love a drink garnished with cinnamon sticks? Read on for the recipe!

The Beehive Cocktail

beehive2

As we move from the golden days of summer into the crisp nights of fall, it’s only right to sip on an appropriately autumnal cocktail. That cocktail is the Beehive. This drink strikes the perfect balance between sweet and spicy by combining fiery ginger with floral honey (plus a hefty amount of bourbon).  The Beehive is refreshing enough to enjoy while tailgating and potent enough to swig beside a bonfire. Our secret ingredient is Tippleman’s Ginger Honey Syrup, crafted in small batches to bring your homemade cocktails to the next level.  Grab a bottle here, follow the recipe below, and get buzzed!

 

How To Make the Beehive
2 oz bourbon
3/4 oz Tippleman’s Ginger Honey Syrup
3/4 oz lemon juice
ice
chilled ginger beer
lemon peel for garnish

Add all ingredients except ginger beer to a cocktail shaker. Shake well and strain into a chilled glass. Top with ginger beer and twist lemon peel over drink. Cheers!

Relish Decor Mixer- Bittermilk + Flying Dog Brewery Recipes

To say that we love Bittermilk cocktail mixers is an understatement, so when we partnered up with our favorite brewery, Flying Dog to create delicious Beer Cocktails we were more than excited. So then it began, several nights with Flying Dog taste testing, mixing and remixing, drinking, and taking notes (or at least trying to)- and delicious Bittermilk Flying Dog Recipes were born.  The five perfectly balanced cocktails honor both the Bittermilk Mixer and the Flying Dog Beer, neither one overtaking the other. Five cocktails, with five different beers with each of the five Bittermilk mixers.

Like any great party hostess, we know that with great cocktails comes great food. Brian Voltaggio’s VOLT Restaurant was the perfect space to launch our event. They dressed up our cocktails with just the right amount of complexity and served amazingly delicious food pairings for each of the cocktails. Every guest took home the cocktail recipes so they can now recreate the Relish Decor Bittermilk Flying Dog Cocktails at home for their enjoyment.

Is your mouth watering yet? Pick up some Flying Dog Beer, swing by Relish Decor and get your Bittermilk and start making these cocktails in your home. We can’t wait to hear which ones are your favorites.
