Tomorrow at Carlyle we’re hosting our next spirits-in-focus event featuring J. Witty chamomile liqueur. This organic liqueur is made right here in Portland and just came out a few months ago; it has winter spice notes that make it a really nice ingredient in cocktails this time of year, as in the flip pictured above:
1.5 oz grape brandy
.75 oz J. Witty chamomile liqueur
.5 oz lemon
2 dashes Regan’s orange bitters
Shake all but the nutmeg hard over ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass; grate fresh nutmeg on top.
We’ll be offering this and other winter cocktails made with the liqueur tomorrow from 5-7. Founder Jill Witty will be there too to talk about the product, so come on by to warm up with some good drinks (yes, there’ll be a hot toddy on the menu too).
