ICARUS ◊ 16
Orange infused Navy Strength Chemist Gin, Chareu, lime, simple, GF bitters, Tonic, Mint Garnish

Icarus is a play on your very traditional summery cocktail, a Mojito. Using the local gin from Chemist Distillery, and infusing orange peels it creates a wonderful citrus forward expression. The Chareu helps elevate the notes of cool mint and aloe. Finally topping it off with tonic to help brighten and balance out this very refreshing, yet boozy cocktail. Just like Icarus, this cocktail flies above the norm and will have you sinking into your seat.

Summer nights are not complete without a fruity and easy drinking “sangria” on a porch with the summer breeze passing through your hair. We took the idea of a sangria and ran in the opposite direction with it. We pair Cognac and Peach Liqueur with the tantalizing Pineapple Lavender Cider from Urban Orchard. This is the perfect porch pounder for this summer.
