Snappy Tuesday

Case Study Image

I've had a bottle of Snap for a while, but I've only used it a few times. I did a tasting of it when I first brought it home and I made a "Dark & Snappy" with it once. The bottle has sat untouched all summer, since I don't think Snap is a particularly summery spirit. But I pulled it out the other day and mixed it with some fresh apple cider and really enjoyed it.

-Mix 6 oz apple cider with 2 oz Snap. Rim the glass with honey and cinnamon. Garnish with an apple slice.
(Recipe adapted from here.)
I was worried this might be too sweet, but it wasn't. It was really refreshing and earthy. Next time I'm going to try it in a mug with warm cider.
Have you tried any of the Art in the Age spirits? I was first introduced to them when I was living in Philadelphia, but they're more widely available now. I've seen them at Whole Foods. They're putting out a fifth spirit next year and I'm so excited to find out what it will be!

Art in the Age Welcomes Madewell

10/17/2013
Case Study Image

Tuesday night was a great night for Philadelphians everywhere. Madewell opened up at 17th and Walnut (1716 Walnut St to be precise) with a big bouncer at the door checking names off the list. Inside they were serving Art In The Age cocktails and throwing discounts around like it was nobody's business.

Highlights of the night were the Denim Bar (complimentary hemming upon request!), the assorted chambray tops, and the leopard loafers. Definitely going to have to go back for those! Mostly, I'm just excited aboutfinally having one of the best stores in my backyard. Welcome to Philadelphia Madewell! I can tell we're going to be really, really good friends.

Root Organic Spirits Designed by Art in the Age
Description from Designers :

“At 80 proof, ROOT is unlike anything else on the market today and is the first true American liqueur since the Pre-Prohibition Era.

It is lively, and rose gold in color, this rustic spirit has a full, rich smoky flavor, inspired by an 18th century Pennsylvania folk recipe, which eventually evolved into Birch or Root Beer. The recipe stems from Root Tea, which goes back to the 1700s, when Native Americans taught the recipe to settlers. Over generations, Root Tea grew in potency, particularly in Pennsylvania, where the ingredients grew in abundance. During the Temperance Movement, a Philadelphia pharmacist removed the alcohol and ironically rechristened it Root Beer. This is our creation and interpretation of a genuine potent, Root Tea.

ROOT is a certified organic spirit made with North American herbs and pure cane sugar. All botanicals are painstakingly selected and tested for purity. Using all natural, organic ingredients, like anise, birch bark, cloves and cardamom, with hints of spearmint and citrus, the sugarcane based liquor is distilled in limited batches to ensure maximum quality.
