Holland-based Coppercraft Distillery plans to make a big splash in its third year as the official spirit for the Tulip Time Festival.
Fresh off of winning a bronze medal for its Rum and a gold medal and best in class honors for its Cask-Strength Bourbon at the American Distilling Institute Expo last month, the craft distillery partnered with 13 local restaurants on the Copper Trail, a passport promotion running from May 7-31.
The promotion is focused on the Copper Blossom, a cocktail made exclusively with the award-winning Rum from Coppercraft. Get three stamps and then head over to the distillery for a chance to win a $75 gift basket with swag and receive a free 2 oz. stainless steel Coppercraft-branded flask.
Each site will have a different variation on Coppercraft’s recipe for the Copper Blossom:
• 2 oz. Coppercraft Rum
• 1 1/2 oz. orange juice
• 3/4 oz. Falernum
• 2 dashes of house bitters
Add all ingredients to a cocktail tin with ice and shake. Strain into a rocks glass with ice. Top with ginger beer. Garnish with an orange spiral.
Participating locations include 8th Street Grille, Alpenrose Restaurant & Cafe, Boatwerks Restaurant, Big E’s Sports Grill, Butch’s Dry Dock, CityFlats Hotel, Crazy Horse Steak House, Curragh Irish Pub, Hops at 84 East, Park Theatre, Salt & Pepper Savory Grill and Pub, Sharkee’s Bar & Grill, and Tripelroot in Zeeland.
