Crisp & Crude
Two words: silky and simple.
Tasting Notes: Aged oak barrel, bitter orange, and zesty dandelion. This zero-proof number is bold, bright, and a world traveler. Inspired by oak barrels stored for decades in Kentucky rickhouses, to the bitterly complex chinotto oranges grown in Liguria, to the smoky lapsang souchong tea leaves from the Fujian province of China, and then back to that familiar field of dandelions toasting in the warm golden sun.
This drink flirts with the classics like the Gold Rush and Old Fashioned, but is wholly its own.
Food Pairings: apple pie, charcuterie board, grilled steak.
¾ oz lemon juice
¾ oz orange juice
