Terrain’s Skipping Stones

Bottoms Up
By Anna Faller | Jan. 7, 2023

The holiday season might be over, but Terrain Restaurant in Bellaire toasts local bounty all year long, and we think the plummy nuance of the Skipping Stones cocktail deserves its own celebration. Named for the local stone fruit it features, the drink begins with Kalkaska’s North River Vodka, which Terrain bartenders infuse with tangy plums from nearby King Orchards (psst—there’s also a seasonal nectarine version!). Fresh lemon juice, warmly-spiced Peychaud’s bitters, house-made fruit syrup, and a splash of Slivovitz—that’s a damson plum-spiked brandy—complete this vibrantly-purple drink, which is served in a coup and garnished with a dehydrated lemon wheel. Pair it with something equally decadent; we love the duck confit and jam or a few scoops of house-made ice cream! Enjoy a Skipping Stones cocktail for $12 at Terrain Restaurant in Bellaire at 213 N. Bridge Street. (231) 350-7301,
