Cocktails from the Wine Kitchen Dinner

Catoctin Rabbit

These cocktails were from our recent St. Patrick's Day Spirits Dinner at The Wine Kitchen on the Creek in Frederick, Maryland. They were fun, original, and totally delicious with the dinner menu for the evening.

If you've not been to one of our dinners, whether at the distillery, or at one of our favorite restaurants, you're really missing out! 

These recipes don't include exact measurements or quantities, so a little experimentation will be needed to get the proportions just right.  But that's okay; experimenting is fun!
