This week on Earth Eats we hope to get you into the holiday spirit with a behind-the-scenes look at the making of a walnut liqueur. Earth Eats visits Cardinal Spirits on bottling day, and then we join Scott Lowe for a winter cocktail recipe.
Cardinal Spirits is a craft distillery in Bloomington Indiana. Nocino is one of their festive winter spirits. We spoke with co-founder Adam Quirk and several other members of the Cardinal team, in the Fall of 2018 about the process behind the liqueur.
I returned to Cardinal this fall, and Scott Lowe shared a Nocino cocktail recipe with me (see below).
Here's another Nocino recipe, from Chris Resnick.
