Maybe this is the wrong mentality, but knowing that Dry January is right around the corner makes me much more likely to imbibe now. Or maybe it’s the limited release holiday cocktails with wintery flavors tempting my willpower. Either way, this week saw three new ways to indulge the temptation and sip, sip hooray:
Golden Girl Rum Club dropped its Mele Kalikimaka holiday menu with plenty of seasonal flavors (nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, toasted marshmallow, martian juice—you know, the usuals) and holiday-esque names. A portion of sales of the aforementioned martian juice (called Santa Claus Vs. The Martians on the menu) benefits the Child Advocacy Center.
Big Cedar Lodge has also launched a new seasonal cocktail menu available at The Osage Restaurant and Buffalo Bar, with select drinks also available at Arnie’s Barn. Pear, cinnamon, fig, chocolate and even chili liquor make an appearance in the drinks, which include a dramatic smoked Old Fashioned.
If hard liquor isn’t really your thing (and neither is leaving the couch), Good Clean Wine’s website is now live, so you can order bottles of low-intervention rosé, white and red wines right from the website.
