As the calendar page turns and a new year begins again, it’s natural to look towards the future. We make plans and resolutions for the new year, nurture hopes and dreams, and sometimes moderate our expectations for what’s to come. In January, it all lies in the future, down the road.

This cocktail has an air of expectation and excitement — beginning with a base of bold spice & rich oak in American Whiskey, then bringing in spice and depth from allspice and demerara, and adding intriguing layers of savory herbs & spices from Amaro Montenegro. Enjoyable whether you’re relaxing from the holidays, making plans for the new year, or embarking on a new adventure.
