Stellum Spirits

Punch K.I.T.

This bright sour/punch style cocktail begins with the spicy floral Stellum Rye. To add a vibrant lift and acidity we add a combination of lemon juice and white verjus (unfermented wine juice). For a sweet and spicy backdrop the fruitiness pineapple is paired with the dark baking spice of chai tea infused syrup. Amaretto is added to highlight the marzipan nuttiness of the Stellum rye.
