For this week’s Bit by a Fox Podcast, we go on the road to the Central Coast of California – in San Luis Obispo County.
There’s been a recent booze boom in this already thriving wine country, with nearly a dozen distilleries now forming a Paso Robles Distillery Trail.
The wine makers turned distillers I spoke with shared how SLO may be one of the most exciting new regions for spirits production in the country.
Our last stop on the Paso Robles Distillery Trail was KROBAR Craft Distillery where I interviewed founders, Joe Barton and Stephen Kroener about making whiskey in wine country.
This week’s cocktail recipe was inspired by a drink I had at Fish Gaucho in Paso Robles, made entirely of local ingredients. It was one of my absolute favorites on this trip, “The Highwayman”.
In an ice-filled shaker, shake all ingredients except for the soda until well chilled. Strain into a rocks glass with a large cube. Top with sparkling water and edible flowers to garnish.
