According to Barker, ingredients are carefully selected and measured before they are poured into the medium-charred, three-liter new oak barrels. The time in the barrel adds depth and complexity to the mixture, creating a truly one- of-a-kind experience.
Barker’s creations include the Red Rose Negroni, a spin on the classic Negroni featuring Beefeater gin, Dolin Blanc vermouth, Campari and rose water. The East of Eden is an eastern-inspired version of a Manhattan made with apple cognac, Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur and Cinzano sweet vermouth.
These two cocktails will be available to sample and order for the first time, straight out of the barrel. Free samples will be available from 7 to 8 p.m. while supplies last and full cocktails available for $15.
