Aspen Times Weekly Libation: Cheshire Cat

Summer is here! Need proof? One sure sign is when the food truck rolls into Woody Creek Distillers for Food Truck Fridays. Yes, beginning June 3 and continuing every Friday afternoon though fall (except for Food & Wine weekend), these happy hour happenings are totally happening. Ride your bike down to Basalt via the Rio Grande Trail from Aspen and reward yourself with eats from Open Fire Catering. On the menu: smoked ribs, smoked Colorado bass, roasted veggies, quinoa salad, roasted potatoes with pancetta, sesame noodle slaw and sweet Hawaiian rolls. Pair it up with a signature WCD cocktail, or one off the hometown distillery’s new summer cocktail menu — like the refreshingly sweet Cheshire Cat — and your summer weekends will be off to a great start.
