As we wind down the list, we feature our 2nd mule. This one, quite different than the last.
Colleen Hughes at Crepe Cellar/Growlers is a rockstar, and her drinks are damn tasty too.
Check out holiday version of the classic Moscow Mule!
Tito’s Handmade Vodka
Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur

A sort of local cocktail for those ever so elusive cold nights! Featured for only a short time at Zambra in Asheville!
Boys Don’t Cry
Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum

How good does that sound?
I’m switching it up for this post because 8 is my favorite number. So instead of featuring a local cocktail, I’m gonna share with you one of my favorites. I have a penchant for sweet so it’s no surprise that one of my favorite libations is a Hemingway Daiquiri. Named after the writer, this version of the drink was one of Hemingway’s favorite cocktails. If made correctly, it is the perfect balance between tart and sweet.
I feel like tequila is fitting for our 7th featured cocktail, this one hails from Cabo Fish Taco as their signature holiday drink!
Cranberry Spice Spice Syrup
Y’all, I’m a bit behind on my 12 Days of cocktails, so I’m playing catch up! So here it goes.
I have a thing for Henry Schmulling’s cockails, for real. They’re dynamic and flavorful and our 6th cocktails is not different!
Mount Gay Rum
Vivace gave to me…one hell of a cocktail.
Tonight, I got to spend some time at The Art of the Modern Cocktail party hosted by Liberate Your Palate Charlotte, anyway, we got to try cocktails from Passion 8, Bistro La Bon and Vivace! I got to try so many different cocktails, but if I had to pick just one to feature on BoozinQC, it would be the St. Mirtillo. It was tart, had tons of depth and it was awfully pretty. Recipe is below along with a photo.
Just for fun, check out the entire menu from tonight, drinks were seriously special!
I know i’m behind, bear with me, you’ll really like what we have for you!
Check out this amazing punch from Bob Peters at The Punch Room. This boozy concoction is bursting with tons of flavor.
