Cocktail Tips & Tricks from Assistant Food & Beverage Manager: Adam Brackman

With spring around the corner, remember when starting your garden to include herbs. Not only can they enhance a juicy steak or mouthwatering vegetable dish, but they can also enhance cocktails when done right. If your preference is whiskey, which most have a smoky character, pair it with a strong herb like tarragon or rosemary which won’t overpower this bold spirit. If you are looking for a spirit with a hint of botanicals like gin, pair it with sage or lemongrass that play off the floral bouquets and tastes. Even if your knowledge of spirits is limited, learning to match the right herbs with the correct spirit will make you a master with all your friends.spirit&herbmatrix
