I Cannot Tell a Lie

Recipe by One Eight Distillling

I Cannot Tell a Lie

This drink was inspired by the story of George Washington and his cherry tree.

Geltini

Recipe by Jonathan Stahl

Geltini

This cocktail has “grown-up Chanukah” written all over it: potato vodka takes the place of latkes while rich chocolate liqueur and edible gold leaf flakes stand in as sophisticated gelt for the 21-plus set.
