Botanist's "Cold Toddy" Chris Plavidal

Recipes

Celebrate the First Day of Fall With a Cold Toddy

We borrow a recipe from Botanist, and set the scene with more botanical-infused booze.

Be one with nature at Botanist, a new Bishop Arts cocktail lounge that infuses herbs in its concoctions. “I’ve always wanted to open a bar that pays homage to the wonders of plants,” says Director of Hospitality Natasha Nazerian, who has a background in environmental anthropology.

  • ¾ ounces yellow chartreuse
  • 1 ½ ounce chamomile-infused rye
  • ¾ ounces ginger liqueur
  • ¾ ounces lemon juice

Shake and double strain ingredients into a coupe.

Garnish with candied ginger with a chamomile flower in the drink.

(Can also be served in a teacup or rocks glass.)

Garden Party

Why drink the same old gin and tonic when you can infuse the garden into your beverage of choice? Take advantage of fall flora and get creative at your next cocktail party.
