Crafted for those seeking a unique twist on tradition, this cocktail ventures beyond the conventional whiskey experience. Our blend features Crater Lake's exquisite Black Butte whiskey, delicately washed in nutty brown butter, frozen to crystallize the richness, and meticulously strained. Complemented by our signature honey and cinnamon simple syrup, a touch of walnut bitters, and a dash of angostura butter, this cocktail strikes a perfect balance of sweetness and opulence. Pair it seamlessly with our Lillet Rouge Au Poivre 10oz New York Steak or indulge in the decadence of our coconut bread pudding for a truly elevated dining experience.
