Last week I posted a story about the growth of Georgia’s microdistilleries. These folks have shared winter drink recipes made with their products. Happy New Year!
13th Colony Rye Hot Cider
by Casey Teague, Mac McGee’s
In an Irish coffee glass add the rye and brown sugar. Top with hot cider. Add the bitters, stir and garnish with the cinnamon stick and lemon slice spiked with whole cloves.
by Marc Caballero, Sprig Restaurant
Put Richland Rum, Snap, brown sugar and bitters into a mixing glass and shake very well with ice. Strain into an Old Fashioned glass over ice and top with ginger beer.
by Dawsonville Moonshine
Combine all ingredients and garnish with lime. Serve cold.
Georgia Mountain Berry Spritz
Combine brandy and juices. Top with soda and serve with a blackberry garnish.
Check the websites of each distillery to locate stores selling their products.
