Warm Up with our Cozy Winter Cocktails

Adirondack Winters can be cold ❄️ Luckily, we have cocktails that will give you rosy cheeks and warm you right up!

Tested for success at our Queensbury Tasting Room, we know what people like, and we know just where you can get all the ingredients to make at home!

At both of our tasting rooms, you can find New York Spirits used in these recipes from American Oak Distillery, Springbrook Hollow Distillery and Montauk Rum Company.

We also carry the organic LUSH Cocktail Mixes and Hudson Valley Marshmallow Company marshmallows used in garnishes below at our tasting rooms!

🤫 psss... Did you know Wine Cocktails are generally higher in alcohol than a typical cocktail? Why? Because we replace the juice with wine! Try one for yourself and you'll be feeling fine in no time!
