Sponsor spotlight: Enjoy this holiday cocktail recipe featuring Scratch Barrel Finished Gin

At Scratch, December cocktails always highlight our Barrel Finished Gin…

For Scratch Barrel Finished Gin, we start with a recipe similar to our Martini Style Gin, but build up the cinnamon, nutmeg, heat, and juniper. Then we finish the gin in an emptied Scratch Edmonds’ Own Whiskey barrel. The result is a complex gin with notes of vanilla, cinnamon, and spice.

Here’s our favorite cocktail in the Scratch Tasting Room/Patio:
