This original cocktail recipe created by The Mansion’s Catering Manager, Lisa, celebrates the personality of that conventional preppy who displays a uniquely hipster twist…the preppy hipster…we all know one or two!
This cocktail’s twist on the classic preppy G&T are the savory aromatics in the flavor profile of the Tommyrotter Gin, the astringent sage cut fresh from The Mansion’s urban garden, and the alpine herbs in the bittersweet Breckenridge Bitters liqueur.
Hotel and special events guests enjoy The Mansion’s unique ‘Boutique Bar’ which features small batch & boutique spirits, including exceptional Buffalo-made products. Buffalo’s own Tommyrotter Distillery has made it quite easy to feature local spirits, doing their part to put Buffalo on the international spirits map by recently winning a silver medal at the world’s most prestigious annual spirits industry competition. This recipe calls for green tea honey syrup and while you can find this ingredient at specialty grocers, we suggest that you get-your-DIY-on and steep a homemade batch. Pop the unused portion in the fridge and use to blend with sparkling water or drizzle over fresh fruit throughout the week.
