Winter Cocktails / Whiskey
The Sharpie MustacheChris Elford, my close friend and mentor, came up with this drink when he worked at Amor y Amargo in New York City as a bartender. Gin and rye is a combination that you don’t commonly find, but it creates a complexity of flavors. Rye is spicy, the juniper from the gin is herbal, and the bitterness from the Meletti brings the two together.
- 3/4 oz. Bulleit Rye
- 3/4 oz. London dry gin
- 3/4 oz. Bonal
- 3/4 oz. Meletti
- 2 dashes of Tiki bitters
When Kentucky BurnsThis is a Saison original and a play on the classic Brown Derby cocktail. “When Kentucky Burns” is a homage to the South and our love of spicy food. There are many layers of taste in this three-ingredient cocktail: sour, spicy and sweet.
- 2 oz Bulleit Bourbon
- 3/4 oz Grapefruit juice
- 1/2 oz Habanero honey
The Bulleit 10 50/50This is a fun drink to make with a great product, Bulleit’s 10 Year Bourbon. A “50/50” is my usual go to drink after work. They’re easy to make and they allow you to have a straightforward taste of 10-year aged bourbon without just serving it on the rocks.
- 3/4 oz. Bulleit 10 Year Bourbon
- 3/4 oz. Choice of amaro (I recommend CioCiaro)
Saison is located at 23 West Marshall Street, Richmond, VA
