1 tsp dried eucalyptus leaves (found at specialty or health food stores)

1 tbsp Gunpowder green tea

lime zest

Combine mint, eucalyptus, and green tea in a tea infuser in a glass.

Start with a little hot water (just enough to cover the in...

More often than not, there is a podcast playing out in the studio while we're working. A particular favorite is Chris Hardwick's Nerdist podcast. Chris Hardwick (for those who may not know!) is the host of The Wall, The Talking Dead, and At Midnight. About a month ago, Kenny decided to make a full piece of stained glass inspired by the podcast. He sketched for a while and finally decided on an image of Chris and Reggie Watts doing the podcast, with "Enjoy Y...

The goat's milk base for this cocktail comes from our goats here at River Road Farm. Our goats have very mild milk, because we monitor their diets closely and make sure the milkers don't have anything that can make their milk bitter, such as beet pulp. The slight earthiness of the goats milk goes really well with the bitter and aromatic nutmeg. The wine glass pictured can be purchased HERE Enjoy!

Milk & Honey

.5 oz heavy cream

2.5 oz goats milk

1.5 oz honey syr...

This cocktail is named after and inspired by my favorite WAMC Northeast Public Radio contributor. Both she and the cocktail are sharp, fortifying, and punchy. The rosemary lemon syrup (recipe HERE ) makes this cocktail super herbaceous and fresh. The tonic syrup can be difficult to find in some areas, so 2 oz high quality tonic water can be used as a replacement. The cocktail will be a little less intensely flavored, but still delicious! The hand paint...

This syrup tastes great in cocktails with several different liquors. It's awesome with gin (the more botanical the better,) silver tequila, and works well with a lot of different apertifs and amaros, too. Bonus- it makes your house smell fantastic when you simmer it!

Rosemary Lemon Syrup

2 large sprigs of rosemary

Juice from half a lemon

2-3 lemon wheels

1 cup sugar

3 cups water

Add all ingredients to a sauce pan and simmer over very low heat for about 20 minutes.

With all the cold winter weather lately, we needed a little bit of a pick-me-up and reminder of sunny days spent on the river. The only wintery thing about this drink is the snowball used in place of crushed ice! The dragonfly glasses are another reminder of warm summer days and can be purchased on our Etsy store HERE

Snowball Mint Julep

8-10 mint leaves, plus extra sprig for garnish

.75 oz simple syrup (equal parts sugar & water dissolved over heat and allowe...
