Incorporating freshly grown ingredients into classic cocktails, these Aspen spots champion a new sort of drinking. Here, some of our favorite offerings.
The Luce del Sole cocktail at Jimmy's is ideal to enjoy alongside the eatery's delicious food offerings.
Jimmy’s Luce del Sole puts a botanical spin on the cocktail list: Absolute Ruby Red vodka, Aperol, orange, lemon, and agave. Don’t forget to sip on it while indulging in one of the eatery’s famous side dishes. 205 S Mill St. #2, 970-925-6020
The team at Justice Snow’s clearly appreciates nature. Although many of their drinks boast exotic fruits and floral foundations, we are partial to the By Any Other Name cocktail, made with Golden Moon gin, Golden Moon Crede de Violette, rose petal infused Lillet Blanc, fresh grapefruit and lemon juice, demerara syrup, and lavender bitters. 328 E Hyman Ave., 970-429-8192
This famous French restaurant at the Viceroy Snowmass knows how to create the perfect dining experience. In the Bramble Smash cocktail, the cilantro, blackberries, and lime perfectly complement the base liquor, Pinnacle vodka. 110 Carriage Way, Suite 3106, Snowmass Village, 970-429-4163
