This week, Apotheke begins a new “Farm Fresh Elixir” series. Each week one of our resident mixologists will create a special cocktail featuring sustainably grown, local produce. To keep things interesting the showcased elixir will debut each Monday and will only be available for one week. This cocktail series aims to further celebrate our commitment to collaborating with and supporting local farmers.
Our Head Mixologist, Nicolas O’Connor, has spun a tasty spell with this week’s Farm Fresh Elixir… THE GANDER. This potion features dill infused Kanon Organic Vodka, muddled gooseberries and red currents, pressed lime juice, agave nectar and aloe vera juice. Fancied by ladies and gents alike, this herbal and refreshing beverage, eludes to the old adage what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.
Nicolas sourced the floral dill herb, tart gooseberries and beautiful red currants from Phillips Farm, a nearly 175 year old family owned and operated farmstead in Milford New Jersey. Phillips Farms recently became a part of the Garden State Farmland Preservation Trust Program; a land trust that preserves open spaces, farmland and historic sites. The 200 acre open space supplies the greater New Jersey and New York area with a cornucopia of healthy sustainable produce year round.
Surrender to your curiosity, stop in this week and have a gander of your own.
