Tonight’s Atlantic Cellars tasting is with Atsby Vermouth. This new generation of vermouth is made with vintage grapes from Long Island, New York, in small batches upstate. I am already a big fan of these botanical beauties on their own but I was really excited to use them in cocktails. Continuing my love affair with fall, I decided that I’d make a Pumpkin Pie Spice Syrup for one of the cocktails, Amber Waves of Grain. OMIGOD, it made my apartment smell like a cozy New England cabin in the woods. For that same pumpkin spice cocktail, I also wanted to highlight the fact that apple brandy is used as a base for these vermouths, and included another New York made spirit to the mix: StillTheOne Apple Brandy, also made from New York apples – which I had the chance to taste at last week’s StillTheOne Distillery tasting. It’s going to be an Autumnal hometown kind of night! Stop by anytime from 6-9pm and experience these exciting, local new spirits.
