Taproot Cider House's Root Fashion

Bottoms Up
By Lynda Wheatley | Oct. 26, 2019

How a cocktail that’s submerged a near-tennis-ball-sized ball of cherry ice can be so deliciously warming is a mystery only the bartenders of Taproot Cider House can solve, but we suspect a clue lies somewhere in the thick ribbon of Makers Mark that floats at the surface and hits the tongue and then the brain in one swift, cheek-pinkening wave. Thanks then to the undercurrent that follows: a splash of water, a squeeze of orange, and some spiced cherry bitters sweetened with brown sugar. It’s a rousing warm-up — and wake-up — for a cold autumn evening that asks you to linger. $10. Find the Root Fashion, $10, at Taproot Cider House, 300 E Front St. (231) 943-2500,
