Furnace Street Distillery’s The Trick Dog

Bottoms Up
By Anna Faller | May 20, 2023

The newly-released spring cocktail menu at Furnace Street Distillery in Elberta is all about riffing on classic flavors, and The Trick Dog, well, does the trick! Named for the distillery’s past as an art gallery and cafe, this beverage is equal parts familiar and funky. It starts with small-batch Furnace Street vodka, which is filtered through charcoal for a citrusy-clean finish. From there, bartenders add flat-leaf parsley, strawberry puree, and house-pressed lemon before (literally) shaking things up with just a splash of simple syrup. Finished with rhubarb bitters and a parsley sprig, this drink is your summer refresh in a glass. Pair it with a wood-fired pizza from on-site food truck Hearth & Hops (the Arugula and Prosciutto is our favorite!), and take in the view of Betsie Bay while you sip. Find The Trick Dog ($14) at Furnace Street Distillery (1121 Furnace St., Elberta). (231) 352-9044, furnacestreetdistillery.com
