Indian Summer Cocktail
The Farm to Shaker event theme directly inspired The Indian Summer cocktail. I'm very culinary and garden-driven in my approach to cocktails. My favorite ingredients to use are those that can both stand alone and have the versatility to cross over from food to drink, such as fresh herbs.
