On the Table

Golden Age of the Jerk What a soda jerk would make you if you could have booze in your contour bottle. Take a seat at the lunch counter and leap into the fountain drinks of yesterday with a rah-rah taste of the Friday night lights. Plantation Rum XO 20th Anniversary 1½ oz. Cardamaro Vino Amaro ¾ oz. Ginger root simple syrup ½ oz. Fresh-squeezed lemon juice ½ oz. Vanilla extract 1 ¼ tsp. Bittercube Blackstrap Bitters 4 dashes Method: Place a Nick and Nora glass in the freezer until chilled, at least 5 minutes. Add all liquids and bitters into a cocktail tin and fill with ice. Shake for eight seconds and strain drink into glass.

To Shame the Blush Breaking the disciplined parity of a Negroni, this frenzied rendition on the classic sip is an appetite-building aperitif with deep botanicals, a lack of vermouth and a phantom presence of celeriac. Hat Trick Botanical Gin 1 oz. Campri 1 oz. Cocchi Americano Rosa ½ oz. Combier Pamplemousse Rose Liqueur ½ oz. Method: Add all liquids into a pint glass or cocktail mixing glass and fill two-thirds of the way with ice and stir until wellchilled. Strain into rocks glass filled with large ice cubes. Garnish with orange peel.

The Old Man of New York Hold the Old World of an aged classic in your glass with this stylized riff on a Perfect Manhattan inspired by exploring the aromas of an antique store: cedar chests, leather chairs, worn books, and pipe tobacco. It’s a multidimensional drink that will evolve, not just in the glass but also on your palette. James E. Pepper 1776 Rye Whiskey Sherry Cask Finished 2 oz. Bonal Gentiane-Quina Aperitif ½ oz. Cocchi Americano Rosa ½ oz. Regan’s Orange Bitters 2 dashes Woodford Reserve Sassafras and Sorghum Bitters 2 dashes Luxardo Maraschino Cherry Method: Place a coupe or cocktail glass in the freezer until chilled, at least 5 minutes. Add all liquids and bitters into a pint glass or cocktail mixing glass and fill two-thirds of the way with ice. Stir vigorously with a cocktail spoon until chilled, about 30 seconds. Remove the coupe from the freezer, place the cherry inside, and strain the drink into the glass.

August “8”

Now is the time to celebrate back to school, college football and of course the first flush of apples. Apple festivals across the Carolinas begin in August. Dip slices in citrus juice to keep fruit pretty (fyi: pineapple juice staves off oxidation better than lemon juice). Salted caramel cookies add a hint of a savory bite to our August offering. Local rosemary tops our number eight dessert, along with pistachio encrusted fig meringue kisses and deeply orange-hued edible flowers.
