Jingle Julep, Featuring Belmont Farm Distillery

While we do love a classic Mint Julep, we wanted a cocktail to help celebrate the holiday season. The Jingle Julep mixes our new Bourbon with the tradition of mint, and then kicks it up a notch by adding the flavor of cranberry. The result is a refreshing, dangerously drinkable cocktail that will help you Jingle all the way into the New Year!

 2 oz Kopper Kettle Virginia Straight Bourbon Whiskey
2 oz Cranberry Juice
1 oz Simple Syrup
4 Fresh Mint Leaves

Chai Tai, featuring Belmont Farms

A spiced take on the exotic classic that lends it a new dimension.

1.5 oz Kopper Kettle Dark Chai Spice Rum
.5 oz Pierre Ferrand Dry Curaçao
.5 oz Orgeat*
1 oz lime juice

1.25 cup raw, blanched almond slivers
2.5 cups hot water
2.5 cups white sugar
.5 oz orange flower water
1 oz vodka (for preservative)

Add all ingredients to shaker, add ice, shake. Double strain over fresh ice in rocks glass. Garnish with a lime wheel.

Soak almonds in warm water for at least 1 hour to macerate. Drain water. Put wet almonds in a blender, and blend while slowing adding 2½ cups of boiling-temperature water until the mixture has a smooth, creamy consistency. Let this mixture sit in non-reactive container for 2 hours. Using a chinois and a nut bag or cheese cloth, strain mixture into a saucepan, pressing hard to extract every bit of liquid. Add 2.5 cups of white sugar to saucepan with the almond milk you’ve extracted. Cook gently over medium heat and stir until sugar is all dissolved, then promptly remove from heat and let cool. Add Orangeflower water and vodka, store in clean container, and keep refrigerated. Yield: about 1 qt
