If you think you don’t like brown spirits, you need to give this beauty a try.  It’s the perfect tipple for when you’re feeling moody and blue.

Created by our brilliant bartender, Angel, for Mary Elizabeth who hates all dark spirits, this clever variation on a whiskey sour is rich, sweet and comforting.  Its mellow autumnal flavors makes us think of a lazy, drizzly October afternoon. But we like it damn near anytime.
