Cocktails: Smoke & Fire

Story Highlights

We have partnered with Beth Dixon of Salt & Acid to bring you the Outdoor Dreams' Cocktail Hour. Beth has been in the restaurant industry for over 19 years, working at many of Richmond's finest restaurants including Can Can, Pasture, Perch, and L'Opossum. She also currently serves as President for the Richmond, VA chapter of the United States Bartenders’ Guild. Her company Salt & Acid provides professional bartending services for private events, special occasions, and beverage consulting.

This cocktail is "booze forward" and perfect for sipping slowly by your fire feature or while waiting for trick-or-treaters. The unique bitters and garnishes give this cocktail a wonderful seasonal feel. Though we have released it for Halloween, this would be a wonderful fireside sipper throughout the fall, holiday, and winter seasons.

With all of that said, we hope you enjoy "Smoke & Fire."
