Vitick Sorghum Switchel Cocktail
We had the pleasure of hosting Jill Vitick, of Vitick's Switchel, in our tasting room this month. Jill brought in several jars of switchel, which is an old colonial farm drink. A mixture of honey, maple, or sorghum, vinegar, and other spices, switchel was the "Gatorade" of its day: a cool, refreshing energy boost after a hard day's labor.
Of course, we turn things like this into cocktails! Here is our cocktail with her sorghum switchel.
1 oz Roundstone Rye
½ oz Sorghum Switchel
¼ oz barrel aged maple syrup
dash of black walnut bitters
garnish with an orange twist
