Boulder-based Altitude Spirits is offering a collection of seasonal cocktail recipes this winter season. From fresh Juniper Green Hot Gin Toddy to warm Clementine and Spice Infused Scotch recipes, Altitude Spirits distills only organic spirits to create some of the season’s most festive drinks.
For instance, to make a Vodka 14 Cobbled Raspberry Martini, begin with two ounces of Vodka 14 in a martini shaker. Then, add one ounce of organic Shiraz, two teaspoons of organic sugar, and a few fresh organic raspberries. Shake vigorously over ice and strain into a martini glass, garnished with a raspberry.

SWEET, SWEET BEER
Boulder Beer Company will be releasing a new limited-edition beer called A Honey of a Saison. At 11.5 percent ABV, the beer features big floral aromas and flavors combined with the spicy, sweet aroma from the Wildflower Honey it’s brewed with. The ale also shows low hop bitterness, at only 25 IBUs.
Join Boulder Beer Company as they celebrate the release of A Honey of a Saison and tap the first kegs of the season. The event will run from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., on Dec. 13 at The Pub at Boulder Beer Company. Prizes will be up for grabs in an ugly sweater contest, and bottled products can be purchased there as well.
