Recipe of the day: Girvan Holiday

Girvan Holiday

Each day of the 2019 Food & Wine Classic in Aspen, we here at The Aspen Times are going to be sharing a drink recipe from Food & Wine that you can find either in the Grand Tasting Tent or at a bar around town.

To kick things off, we are featuring the Girvan Holiday, a William Grant & Sons cocktail created by Carlos Yturria from San Francisco. Yturria will be serving this drink and more at the patio bar at Jimmy’s in Aspen tonight and Saturday.
