This cocktail was created in December of 2020, the closing of a stranger season in a stranger time. Sitting shoulder to shoulder with the embers of s smoldering bonfire, we found ourselves contemplating what would come of this earth with the cresting of spring.
In this cocktail we take two of our favorite Virginia-local producers, Rosemont Vermouth and Patois Cider, to craft something simple and slightly forlorn; an introspective pause in the interim between years.
- 1 oz Rosemont Vermouth
- 3 oz Patois Perry
- 1 oz Trabanco Alma Quinquina
- 1 dash Artemisia Æstas Bitters
- Orange Rind, for garnish
- Mix Quinquina, Vermouth, and Bitters in a rocks glass with ice.
- Add perry, stir briefly, and garnish with an orange rind.
