Aspen Times Weekly Libation: Founding Fathers

by Jeanne McGovern


1 1/2 ounces Jefferson’s Small Batch Bourbon (Justice Snow’s Barrel if possible)

1/2 ounce Leopold Brothers Peach

1/2 ounce Salers Gentiane Aperitif

2 dashes Grapefruit Bitters

Stir, strain over rocks, grapefruit peel expression and garnish

Aspen plays host to plenty of parties and premieres. but on our radar this week is the Jefferson’s Craft Bourbon Dinner at Justice Snow’s on Feb. 26. A four-course tasting dinner hosted by Jefferson’s co-founders Trey and Chet Zoeller, the evening will shed light on their philosophy of crafting distinctive very small blends — and the unveiling a brand-new very small blend bourbon exclusively for Justice Snow’s. The restaurant will be purchasing a barrel of this particular blend to offer in concoctions like the Founding Fathers. We love when a local bar does good by bringing craft spirits to town and throwing a party to announce the good news.
