Stellum spirits


Some flavors just taste better in fall. This cocktail from Randi Densford, beverage director at Barn8 Farm Restaurant + Bourbon Bar in Goshen, Kentucky, ticks pretty much every autumnal flavor box: Ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, citrus, and rye whiskey. But it’s also a long drink, which gives it a welcome refreshing quality — much like crisp fall sun on the brilliant colors of the changing leaves.


  • 2 ounces Stellum Rye

  • 1 ½ ounces chai spiced orange cordial (recipe below)

  • ½ ounce lemon juice

  • Fever Tree ginger beer

  • Candied ginger and dehydrated orange slice, for garnish

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail tin filled with ice. Shake, then strain into a Collins glass filled with fresh ice. Top with ginger beer, then garnish with candied ginger and dehydrated orange.

Chai spiced orange cordial

To make the chai spiced orange cordial, combine one cup of freshly squeezed orange juice, ½ cup sugar, ¾ tsp cinnamon, and ¼ tsp each of ground ginger, cardamom, and allspice. Stir over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved, then remove from the heat and allow to cool. Once cool, add ¾ tsp citric acid. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator
