Introducing "The Vaughan" cocktail. This robust, spirit-forward cocktail strikes a fine balance between bitter and sweetness, much the same way you'll find in a good Negroni. It's a shout out to our home town, and a showcase for one of our signature spirits - Darker Side. It's also perfectly in season for spring - which is maple syrup season 'round these parts!
Put your favourite cocktail glass in the freezer to chill, then pour into a tumbler:
2 oz Darker Side
1/4 oz Fernet-Branca
1/2 oz dark maple syrup
2 dashes bitters
Add 5-6 ice cubes, and stir for 40 seconds. Strain into the chilled glass, and garnish with a twist of citrus.
Enjoy with friends.
$49.95 / 750 ml / 46% abv.
