Today’s Feature cocktail is The Workshop inspired by the styling Roger Stevens, co-owner and operator of City Workshop in Maplewood, New Jersey.
His selected ensemble is a RJ-2 Denim Shearling Jacket with a Freenote Navy Benson Plaid shirt and worker Chinos.
The Workshop cocktail is a bourbon based cocktail paired with crème de cassis, lemon juice and simple syrup. Like Roger’s ensemble, The Workshop provides bold and warming notes of the bourbon with a hint of sweet and tangy of the crème de cassis creating a well balanced cocktail that can be enjoyed during a cocktail hour with friends or an intimate dinner with your partner.
