Altar- Chi Herbal Martini

Altar Chi Herbal Martini

Lowtails (low-alcohol cocktials) and non-alcoholic "mocktails" are appearing on more and more bar menus, and Altar makes it easy for home-bartenders to create their own craft lowtails at home.  You don't want to add too many other elements as the flavors can quickly become "muddied". Chi is a complex blend of cherries, mint, ginger, juniper, and sumac making it a natural fit for a herbaceous gin. Explore the rest of the herbal blends http://www.altarco.com/.

Bakon Bloody Mary - Bloody Good

Bakon Bloody Mary

I know I know, bacon vodka. For some, it sounds like the greatest invention ever. For others, their worst nightmare. While we agree that it is WEIRD, particularly on it's own, it truly makes one of the best Bloody Mary's we've had. There is an fatty, buttery mouthfeel that needs some heavy spice to cut through the mix. Enter Dimitri's Bloody Mary Seasoning in Chipotle-Habenero flavor for the mix, along with local salt mavens, Salinity Salt Chipotle Finishing Salt for the rim. These take your Bloody Mary from ordinary to extraordinary with a fiery kick.

1-2 tsp Dimitri Chipotle-Habenero Bloody Mary Mix

6-8 oz Tomato Juice

Optional: Garnish with celery, bacon, or pickled veggies.
