Q: Can you propose an appropriate cocktail to drink
while pondering this magnificent Bierstadt painting?

Reynolds Center Architecture

A: This breathtaking scene calls for a cocktail with three elements: First, a dark, brooding spirit at its foundation. Second, the hint of alpine flavors, woodsy and herbaceous. Third, a column of light piercing through it all. Behold, the:


3 ounces Rittenhouse rye whiskey
1 ounce Green Chartreuse
1 ounce Zirbenz Stone Pine liqueur
1 ounce fresh lemon juice
1 ounce honey syrup
(equal parts honey + warm water)

Stir with ice. Using a funnel, transfer liquid into an 8-ounce flask.*
*Mr. Alpenglow does not condone bringing flasks into art museums.

Have a question for Mr. Alpenglow?
