The robust flavors of applejack and Woodford Reserve are tempered by the sweetness of maple syrup, while the citrusy notes of orange and lemon add a touch of sunshine to your winter evening.

Naughty or Spice: A Festive and Fun Treat

If you’re already contemplating how many pieces of coal can fit in your stocking, our Naughty or Spice cocktail, made with uncle nearest 1884 bourbon, fernet-branca, lemon, molasses syrup, and fever-tree blood orange ginger beer, was meant for you. We can already see you making a toast to your partner-in-crime as you take in the festive vibes of our Elf’d UP holiday pop-up bar.
