Breckenridge Distillery @ Citizen Public House & Oyster Bar

On Wednesday night (before our Tasty Burger incident...), we visited our friends over at Citizen Public House & Oyster Bar.  They were hosting some folks from Breckenridge Distillery for an evening of cocktails featuring their spirits. 

David and I drank delicious Manhattans with Breckenridge Bourbon Whiskey.  The high-rye whiskey was smooth and contained a hint of vanilla that lingered on the tongue and warmed the belly.  The folks at Breckenridge really seem to love what they do, and they put a lot of thought and hard work into each of their spirits.  I'd never had their Bourbon Whiskey before, but I'll certainly be having it again.

Later in the evening, we asked John (one of our favorite bartenders) to break out the tumblers so we could enjoy a glass of whiskey on the rocks.  He happily obliged.  (And when we say rocks, we mean one giant ice sphere- a slow-melting orb of ice that perfectly cools a sipping spirit and looks positively gorgeous in a glass.)

And that, my friends, is how you make a ice sphere!  Be careful not to chip a tooth...

Many thanks to Breckenridge Distillery for making such a fine spirit and thank you to Citizen Public House & Oyster Bar for being awesome, as always.

  1. Great post. My fiance and I were just looking at a few breckenridge vacation home rentals the other day. I would love to check out the Citizen Public House & Oyster Bar. That ice sphere looks cool! Thanks so much for sharing Kate.
