Now that the holidays have past and the decorations are being stored away, it’s time for some well-deserved relaxation. I can think of no better place to do that than here at the Inn. Just imagine yourself sitting by the roaring fire, totally relaxed after a massage at the spa with your phone, tablet and laptop stored away. Now comes the best part; a colorful, seasonal and hand-crafted cocktail featuring house-made juices and syrups, local artisan vodka and sparkling wine! This cocktail is one of our newest signature items on our ever-evolving bar menu. I love developing cocktails that feature ingredients that are house-made and local. This is in direct harmony with our philosophy at Honey Run that hand-made, local and seasonal products are critical to the Honey Run Experience. Please enjoy this cocktail at home or better yet here at your home away from home!

This sounds yummy! It combines my favorite flavors of orange cranberry with my very favorite spice, ginger. I will certainly try this when we visit later this month.
