January 2024 brings you Ellicottville Brewing’s Galentine’s Day Brunch, an intriguing Strawberry Rhubarb Moonshine by Still Fired Distillery, and the 6th Annual Cask Ales FUNdraiser by LIBME supporting diabetes education. Plus, Catoctin Creek celebrates 15 years with expanded shipping options, though NY remains off-limits (jokingly tempting illicit whiskey runs).
During the holidays, we received a bottle of butterfly pea serum and improvised a “Faux Paloma” using tequila, agave syrup, lime juice, grapefruit seltzer, and butterfly pea serum. The drink had a pleasant color, and it can be easily customized for sweetness and yields two servings from a 12 oz. can of seltzer.
