Fall in Holland

Stephen Cole's new cocktail at Barrelhouse Flat is a response to those who reach instinctively for whiskey once the temperature drops. Instead of a brown spirit, nutmeg-scented allspice dram and the orange of Licor 43 add sweet spice to malty genever.

It's a modern cocktail with an old soul, crafted with minimal ingredients and is an excellent example of Barrelhouse's equal appreciation for classics and creativity. Allspice dram appears a number of times on Barrelhouse's fall menu, including in a wintry rum sour with lemon juice, cinnamon syrup and a grating of fresh nutmeg on top.
