Essentially every cocktail is created by one of our staff members as our philosophy is to provide our guests with seasonal and aromatic choices while keeping it personal. Our talented Beverage Director, Jay Akin, has had a big hand in these creations and is always happy to talk favorites.
To incorporate the aromatic addition into our cocktails → this Autumn season, we’re adding citrus oils as well as herbs like rosemary and sage. As a result, what you’ll find here, at Black Barn, are classic recipes with a twist!
Isabell is named after Jay’s great aunt → the queen of fashion couture, Isabell Gerheart. She inspired the classic recipe for a gin martini as it was served back in the 1920’s. With a added twist — essentials oils of citrus — we’ve taken the recipe to a new level.
Isabell ingredients: Cotswold’s Gin · Del Professore · Dry Vermouth · Essentials Oils of Citrus
→ This drink pairs excellent with our shellfish platter due to the brightness of the gin and the botanicals involved in the Cotswolds.
Gran’s Pumpkin Pie uses apple cider vinegar to better serve your health! Apple cider vinegar is not a common ingredient to use in a cocktail, so we had to make it happen!
We love serving the drink with our Chipotle-Orange BBQ Beef Rib as the apple cider vinegar will cut through the marbling in the ribs. In addition, it will eat up the fat in the bone marrow and cleanse the palate greatly. Not to mention, it’s as delicious as it sounds!
This drink was a collaboration between Jay, our Beverage Director, and Jake,our bartender.
Gran’s Pumpkin Pie ingredients: Black Dirt Bourbon, St. Elizabeth All Spice Dram, Pumpkin Liquer, Pumpkin Juice, Apple Cider Vinegar
One of the greatest perks to our cocktail list is its unique ingredients that help boost your very own immune system. How great is that?! Because a drink with health benefits will surely have me feeling good. So speaking of, try our Beetlejuice! Since it’s rich with nitrates, beet juice is also a good sources of folate, potassium, vitamin C, fiber, and antioxidants.
Beetlejuice ingredients: Ancho Reyes, Union Uno Mezcal, Beet Juice, Coint reau, and Hawaiian Black Salt.
The Bootlegger is one of our most unique! As it is aged for over a month in oak barrels before being brought out. Because this aging process adds as a softness and caramel baking spice to the cocktail. It also helps the ingredients infuse → to come together like a song on your palate. We try to keep them aged in their oak barrel for six weeks unless popularity demands its release.
Bootlegger ingredients: Hudson New York Corn Whiskey, Marvin Dry Vermouth, and Orange Bitters
