Did you know about World Bartender Day? I didn’t but love the cocktail and photos that Spirit Hound Distillers in Lyons, Colorado, shared in honor of the Feb. 24 occasion. 

Amanda Engelhorn, the distillery’s tasting room manager and resident mixologist, uses Colorado ingredients in her unique cocktail recipes to highlight the flavor profiles of spirits she uses, and the Rye Biscus is an excellent example. The cocktail features Spirit Hound’s latest release, a 5 Year Rye Whiskey that hits shelves across Colorado in February. Engelhorn can share tips and tricks for making cocktails and mixed drinks at home with visiting groups. 

Rye Biscus 

1 ½ ounces rye whisky
½ ounce raspberry syrup (recipe below)
¼ ounce fresh lime juice
2 ounces Rosa de Jamaica (Hibiscus Agua Fresca)
¼ dropper cacao bitters 
Garnish: orange twist

Fill a Collins glass with ice and add all ingredients. Top with soda water. Give a thorough stir or pour back and forth between a shaker and glass. Garnish with an expressed orange twist.

Raspberry Simple Syrup

8 ounces frozen raspberries
1 1/4 cup hot water
Appropriate amount sugar (equal to liquid)

Add raspberries to the jar and cover with hot water, and then store in the fridge, allowing to sit overnight. The next morning, strain raspberry water through cheesecloth, squeezing out any excess liquid. Measure raspberry water, and then heat in a pot to almost boiling and add sugar to dissolve. Store in fridge for up to 2 weeks.

Uncharted Society works with outfitters across the globe to give groups and individuals the opportunity to try motorsports on BRP-certified vehicles. Teams can bond in some of the nation’s most beautiful spots on a wide range of nature tours offered on land, snow, and sea. Check out these three examples from Colorado and Utah. 

 

Triple Creek Ranch in Darby, Montana, has named Molly Smith and Kristen Snavely co-general managers of the all-inclusive luxury property situated in the Bitterroot Valley. Smith is returning to Triple Creek Ranch after a brief hiatus. Previously serving as GM for four years after working her way up from pastry chef, she has since perfected her skills at The Inn at Hastings Park in Massachusetts, another Relais & Châteaux property. 

 

With meetings returning to normal as the COVID-19 pandemic levels out, outdoor mountain pursuits are finding more time on meeting agendas. Taking events outdoors not only boosts attendees’ comfort level as they ease back into in-person meetings, time spent in nature is proven to improve brain health and stimulate creative thinking as well.

We’ll be looking at this topic in-depth in the Spring/Summer 2022 issue of Mountain Meetings. Consider this as an introduction to some of the possibilities.
