This November, swing by Napa Valley Distillery and check out their selection of spiced tonic syrups. Add these tonics to your Gin and Tonics, Vodka Tonics, or a nice warm holiday cocktail. They have a variety of tonics that will bring your cocktails to new heights and bring warmth to the cold days ahead.
They have two local tonics, one from Yes! Cocktail Co called California citrus tonic, which makes incredible G & Ts (vodka tonics too). Made with fresh citrus, lemongrass, and fresh cut cinchona bark- its beautifully bittersweet and the perfect complement to any craft spirit.
Their other local tonic comes from Monarch in Petaluma who describes their tonic as “sweet and tangy, with a texture reminiscent of glycerin or aloe, it strikes the tongue with a nice, sharp acidity that’s mouthwatering and leaves you wanting more. A faint note of citrus that doesn’t lean any which way.”
They also carry a stand-out tonic by True out of Washington DC, who use spices and botanicals that are carefully selected for quality and purity of flavor, so the tonic perfectly complements your drink. Simply add club soda to make tonic water or use it instead of simple syrup to create cocktails with a complex taste.
Finally, they are carrying a tonic from a brand called 3/4 Ounce, whose tonic can be described as original and unique. This high-end product will enhance your parties, please your guests or even be the perfect host gift. Made from natural ingredients, it stands out from other commercial tonic water with its subtle aromas, less sweet taste, its pronounced touch of bitterness, and its amber color.
So swing by the NVD’s Bar Shop today for advice on the perfect craft cocktail for your holiday season. Their spirit experts are available to help you choose the right tonics, bitters, and syrups for your cocktails. Cheers!
