Cocktail: Woodinville Sunrise
Featured Ingredient: Tequila
Cocktail: Dash & Willow
Featured Ingredient: Barrel-aged gin
Hats off to the Queen, this cocktail is more an ode to her dogs than the British royal herself. Barrel-aged gin, French vermouth Dubonnet, lemon and a house-made clove-peppercorn syrup create this savory sip.
Cocktail: Shaken & Firred
Featured Ingredient: Vodka
Cocktail: The Rusty Iron
Featured Ingredient: Rye Whiskey
Providing warmth, inside and out, this smoky, whiskey-forward sip also takes a splash of pommeau and is best enjoyed by a roaring fire. Grab a big ice cube and drop her in – you might be back for seconds.
Cocktail: All the Wilde Things
Featured Ingredient: Aquavit
Get wild(e) at home with this libation from the Gerald in Seattle. Aquavit mixes with vermouth and fernet for a springy sip that captures “the whimsical, complex, childlike storytelling of Oscar Wilde,” says bar manager Katie Frazier.
