Whiskey • Sweet
Out of a Hat

At Chef’s Garden in Hamburg, New Jersey, mixologist Ali Koppel surprises guests with the magic of fresh Garden State ingredients and locally produced moonshine. To capitalize on the sweet nose and young heat of Wicked White Whiskey, Koppel pulls earthy carrots, vibrant citrus and fresh dill from the restaurant’s own garden, magically delivering those flavors to cocktail drinkers like a rabbit from a hat.
