A unique mix of bitters creates a treat for the senses in this seasonal sip from Corktown’s Two James Spirits. While typically busy hosting tours and private events or slinging craft cocktails in its tasting room, the distillery’s team has shifted its efforts during the coronavirus outbreak. It’s been producing hand sanitizer for hospitals, police and fire departments across the Detroit metro, while lifting spirits with creative curbside cocktail kits.

INGREDIENTS

Signature Drink: Planter's Punch

Where it all began—the heart of the exotic cocktail as enjoyed for centuries in Jamaica. One of sour (lime juice), two of sweet (demerara sugar), three of strong (fine Jamaican rum), four of weak (some ice). Plus five of spice to make it nice (allspice and bitters).

In a cocktail shaker combine the following ingredients:

• 1 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice

• 3/4 oz. Demerara simple syrup*

• 1/4 oz. St. Elizabeth's Allspice Dram

• 3 oz. Appleton Estate 12 Year Old Rare Blend

• 2 dashes Angostura Bitters

Every year, the North American International Auto Show brings out the best of planners and vendors presenting a flurry of spectacular entertainment events during the show’s two-week run in the Motor City.

This drink, crafted by Eurest Catering in partnership with Bedrock Events, was created for a client who was hosting an Auto Show Charity Preview private reception at The Madison in downtown Detroit. Not only are local craft brews still popular for events, but locally distilled spirits are also gaining greater popularity. 

Signature Drink: Bourbon Sangria

Riesling, meet bourbon. This refreshing pairing found in the Royal Park Bourbon Sangria is served at the PARK 600 bar + kitchen at Rochester’s Royal Park Hotel. Bartender and server Megan Seeley concocted this citrusy sweet drink while planning the summer menu. “We typically go through 24-30 gallons a week,” says Richard Ragainis, the hotel’s food and beverage director. With such positive buzz from customers, it’s apropos that the drink is made in a sizable jar shaped like a beehive.
