Signature Bloody Mary, available at LeadBelly

LeadBelly has perfected their house Bloody Mary recipe… always made fresh, in-house. The spicy, yet rich recipe may be top secret, but my favorite part? The candied bacon salt rim! In fact – this won them the Best Garnish award at last spring’s Nebraska’s Best Bloody Mary competition!

 Why have a salad when you can get all your greens on top of your drink? …Garnished with a pickle, cucumber, olive, lime, and a big stalk of celery.

 Cardamom Old Fashioned, available at The Grey Plume

Cardamom Old Fashioned, available at The Grey Plume

Cardamom has a rare character that pairs perfectly with orange, cinnamon, and nutmeg making it an ideal aromatic for The Grey Plume’s new favorite fall cocktail. First, they slow steep cardamom in turbinado sugar to capture the rustic autumn spice notes in a rich, amber syrup.  Next, they muddle in fresh orange peel and stir together with a generous pour of creamy Koval Oat single barrel whiskey… Finished with a quick dash of their in-house ginger bitters, you won't want to miss the homespun twist on the classic Old Fashioned.

Pair with the Dutch Girl Creamery Greydon Blue - a small plate featuring fig preserve, in-house oat bread, and fragrant blue goat cheese from Lincoln.
