I named my cocktail New Fall, which represents an adaptation for these current times. Woodford has a rich history: started by Elijah and Sarah Pepper, the couple created a business by building a small cabin near a water source called Pepper Spring. In the beginning of their business, the couple experienced challenges and eventually opened a distillery to survive in the 1800s (given that distillation was the source of currency at the time). Similarly, I’ve chosen Secreto for my location since it’s a patio that was built with the intention to bring people together during these socially distant times.
