Cures What Ails Ya

Metamodernity Bourbon whiskey, Elsewhere blood orange liqueur, fermented young ginger

22% ABV
Greenport, NY

Lovely orange amber pour on the rocks. Breathing in singed orange peel & orange blossoms, sugarcane, mellow bourbon, a smash of ginger that morphs into my mom’s gingerbread. Taking a swig and it’s all of the above scents with a shake of pepper. Feels so good all the way down to your toes!

Pairs with Cheez-Its: step away from the box

Have you ever heard an elk bugle? I haven’t until today. It may be their way of attracting mates, but personally I would run in the other direction if anyone made a haunting overture like that my way…especially if it was on a dark night in the woods. Well, this delicious ginger old fashioned may be named after that call, but it is so much more. Recently I got hit with the bug that has been going around and knocking people on their ass. I have not been this sick in ages and it wouldn’t let go. Lo and behold, I remembered I’d picked up a flask of this “juice”, took a few sips and it was so comforting to my very unhappy throat. Believe me this elixir will cure what ails ya.

Orangey amber on the rocks, and don’t forget to shake it well before you crack that cap and pour. Immediately scents of smooth bourbon, orange zest, and date sweetness with a spark of tropical spice. Just like it says on the bottle it’s all there in the taste…Lovely date filled sweet that balances so well with the light peppery burn of the bourbon and orange bitters. Perfect close to my long day.

Pairs with Cheez-It’s: just don’t!

I’ve been on a date and fig kick lately so this bottle was so perfect for me. As I’ve said in the past, I have a soft spot for locally premade cocktails and especially Wanerding Barman’s because they definitely do a better job than I could. So very easy to drink so pick up 2 or make that 4 bottles if you’re sharing. Just make sure you don’t over do it and find your fingers doing a buzzy swipe in the wrong direction. You know how things always look better with cocktail googles. 🥃

Bourbon brown with yellow highlights that was shaken and poured on the rocks. Last night was a little chilly so this Boomerang fit the bill (and came back and whacked me in the head this morning). Scents of gingerbread made me think of Christmas happy scents of cinnamon, orange zest, brown sugar/maple syrup (where’s the flapjacks?), panettone, smoke and pepper. Tastes like all the scents with more pepper and smoke, some coconut, that good ol bourbon, more maple syrup, and a little orange mixed with Ricola. You’re going to find this hard to believe but it wasn’t till my teen years that I knew what maple syrup tasted like. We always had pure cane syrup in our house. My parents went on a trip to Canada and came back with these delicious maple syrup candies, and I was in total wonderment in what I had been missing out on all those years. Why had my parents been holding out on me?

Pairs with Cheez-It’s: Brings out more holiday spices. Where’s the fireplace and stockings hung with care?
