Sip the Drink of the Month at The Order.

Think back to a few years ago when you’d walk into just about any bar in Springfield and order a cocktail. A quick pour of this, a little squirt of that and voila! drink served. But today things are different. The quality craft cocktail scene is alive and thriving in our little city, and there’s no better testament of this than the custom drink menu at The Order (located inside Hotel Vandivort, 305 E. Walnut St., Springfield, 417-832-1515, hotelvandivort.com). One of our favorite examples of their quality creations is the Taste of Siam cocktail on their winter menu. It’s made with Askinosie-infused El Dorado rum, coconut-basil syrup, fresh lime, Ancho Reyes and a dash of curry. But it’s not just a quick pour of this and a little squirt of that. No. That infused rum? It sits with Askinosie nibs for weeks before it’s ready to use. The coconut-basil syrup? It’s a hand-blended concoction crafted with coconut milk and cream of coconut and steeped with basil. And when they’re all artfully combined with the Ancho Reyes, a squeeze of lime and a dash of curry, the result is a well-balanced drink that mixes a few tropical summer flavors with the rich, heavy tastes of winter. The first sip highlights the creamy coconut flavor, and you start to appreciate the drink’s full texture a few sips in. Notes of chocolate and a bit of spice from the chili round it all out, and you’ll finish every last drop knowing you’ll never want a quick pour of this and a little squirt of that ever, ever again.
