Mammoth Distilling’s William Tell Cocktail

Bottoms Up
By Lynda Wheatley | Feb. 10, 2018

The only thing we like better than drinking Mammoth Distilling’s William Tell cocktail (shown here)? Learning how to make the short pour of subtly sweet and winter-spicy Apple Pie Shrub in it. A half-ounce of the shrub — a macerated blend of apples cold-steeped in apple cider vinegar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar — was paired with 2 ounces Mammoth whiskey and ¼ ounce of cinnamon simple syrup and revealed in last week’s shrub-cocktail making class at Mammoth’s Traverse City outpost. Heartbroken you missed it? Don’t fret. Valentine’s Day brings something else to love: a whiskey and chocolate cocktail workshop that’ll teach you how to make a chocolate Martini, coffee hot cocoa with bourbon whipped cream, and more. You’ll make two drinks in-house, get recipes for four, and learn a load about cocktail-making basics. The Feb. 14 class happens 7–9pm; tickets are $30 per person (21+ only). Check out Mammoth’s calendar for other V-day events and upcoming winter classes. Mammoth Distilling.com
