Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay probably would have written a much sillier set of papers had they had a chance to sip The Federalist's 10 winter cocktails. Some highlights:
No longer just what goes on at Coloradoan beer factories, this "Brew and Smoke" gets its "earthy spiciness" from smoked pepper tequila added to Allagash White & Ceylon reduction, all of which is topped with a porter.
Behold the cinnamon/ milk/ honey & fig syrup/ apple cider "Bourbon Milk Punch".
They grill cloves on the spot, then stick 'em into a lemon rind that lays atop the "Winter Pimms Negroni" like a crown. Death’s Door Gin, Gran Clasico, chai vermouth, and Pimms No. 1 will ensure that your head feels anything but heavy.
The heavenly "A La Mode" with warm apple butter, vanilla-kumquat whipped cream, and an apple spiced rum. Prepare to say goodbye to your sober constitution!
