Do you do anything special to mark the winter solstice as a holiday or special day?
1.5 oz Bully Boy Boston Rum
(I live in New England and we have a Rum-making history here – but you can go local with your own regional dark rum)
0.5 oz Mathilde Poire Liqueur
1 oz Chilled Black Tea
0.5 oz Maple Syrup (mixed 1:1 with water so it’s less viscous)
0.5 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
0.5 oz Spiced Squash Shrub*
Splash of Ginger ale
Dash Fee Brothers Cardamom Bitters
Shake all with ice and strain into an ice filled glass. Garnish with a lemon wheel.
*Spiced Squash Shrub
2 cups chopped fresh squash
2 cinnamon sticks
3 whole cloves
1 1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled
1 whole star anise
1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg
18 ounces vinegar of your choice
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
Simmer the squash and spices with the vinegar, covered, over medium heat for 10 minutes. Pour into a sterilized jar and allow to infuse overnight. Strain out the squash and spices and heat in a saucepan with the brown sugar until dissolved. Allow to cool. Bottle and keep in the refrigerator for up to 4 months.
