A Festive Wintry Cocktail

With a Fearrington House recipe for clarified milk punch that dates back to the 18th century and North Carolina wild flower honey spiced liquor, this cocktail is equal parts history and local ingredients. The Fearrington Nightcap is the perfect fireside companion this winter season.

Fearrington Nightcap
The chefs at The Fearrington House Restaurant created a recipe for clarified milk punch, although the drink recipe dates back to the 18th century, using vodka, bourbon, brandy, baking spices, white and dark chocolate. The cocktail also features Brother Vilgalys Krupnikas, a wild flower honey spiced liquor made in Durham, North Carolina, and Grand Marnier. Presented in a snifter glass and warmed with cinnamon tea, this cocktail releases cinnamon aromatics when lifted.

Sip this wintry cocktail at the bar of The Fearrington House Restaurant before your dinner – or enjoy with your dinner. Cheers!

New Year, New Garden?

Actually, to a gardener in the South, that's a bit of a fantasy. With so many sunny and pleasant winter days outside, the garden never really does get "put to rest." Tools don't quite make it to storage in the tool shed well-oiled and cleaned, and the gardener herself only has a few indoor days by the fire to contemplate next year's seed catalogs. For the many of us who would gladly exchange a long winter nap for the chance to smell flowers and feel warm sunshine on our backs in January,... Full Post >
