New York City’s Saxon + Parole plays with plenty of fresh produce on its drink menu, which means that (depending on the season) guests often request “that watermelon thing” or “that pumpkin thing.” This time, head bartenders Maxime Belfand and Masa Urushido stayed one step ahead and named their heirloom-carrot-packed winter drink accordingly.
There are two ways to make this warming winter drink: One involves smoking your own honey, and the other involves a cheat and buying already smoked honey (a good option is Bee Local white oak smoked honey). Jon Feuersanger, the beverage director of beast + bottle and Coperta in Denver, created this hot tipple that works with or without booze, and it's perfect for drinking as the snow falls during your next civilized holiday get-together.
