It’s local lore that Irving Berlin wrote the lyrics to “White Christmas” while lounging poolside at the Biltmore. But Travis Nass – the “spirit guide,” or mixologist, at the Last Drop Bar at the Hermosa Inn – could make Valley holiday history again with his drink by the same name.
Cinnamon and fig flavors shine brightly in this seasonal drink, made with 1½ ounces Partida Blanco tequila, a half ounce each Domaine de Canton, Der Lachs Goldwasser and Dolin Blanc Vermouth, a dash of salt water and two dashes of AZ Bitters Lab’s Figgy Pudding bitters. It’s shaken and strained into an old fashioned glass full of ice and garnished with a dusting of powdered sugar (the “snow”) and rosemary (the “Christmas tree”) with an orange rind star on top.
