Root Shoot Whiskey is delicious served neat, on the rocks or made into a perfect warming cocktail. This ‘Better Lovers’ cocktail has honey along with the woody chamomile that compliments the leather, vanilla and caramel notes in the whiskey. Hibiscus and cardamaro add an earthy, spicy sweetness on the back end, leaving you with a wonderful, savory open and bright, clean finish. Everything is held together by the creamy, fluffy mouthfeel brought in by the aquafaba - a beautiful slow sipper.

Pairs well while enjoying steak or poultry, or can accompany a dessert containing dark fruits, white or milk chocolate, and ice cream. Better Lovers Recipe:
