Alpine Manhattan: Bourbon, Lemon, Douglas Fir Liqueur

alpine manhattan cocktail

When I first discovered the account @dramapothecary, I fell into one of those deep Instagram crush rabbit holes. The folks at Dram forage fresh ingredients in Colorado to make all of their bitters, shrubs, switchels, and more. I tried making a version of their pine syrup using fir needles and the resulting cocktail was actually quite good.

🌲 Alpine Manhattan 🌲
πŸ”Έ1 1/2 oz bourbon
πŸ”Έ.5 oz Douglas fir liqueur
πŸ”Έ5 shakes black walnut bitters
πŸ”ΈLemon and cherry for garnish

Muddle the cherry and lemon at the bottom of a glass, shake ingredients, and serve! Last one of this type of cocktail until the fall! πŸ˜› πŸ‚

🌲 Douglas Fir Liqueur 🌲
Blend a handful of needles in a cup of vodka and let it sit for a few hours. Strain with a coffee filter and add 1/2 cup of simple syrup.

You can also buy a bottle of Douglas Fir Liqueur from Clear Creek Distillery.
