One of the greatest joys of dining out is ordering a beautiful, fancy cocktail with at least one ingredient you’ve never heard of before. Great craft cocktails can automatically upgrade a night from a 5 to a 10. But they can be equally fun to make at home, I swear. And what better way to show a loved one a little extra TLC by making them a beautiful, fancy, restaurant-quality cocktail in the comfort of your own home? 

This Valentine’s Day, try your hand at the Pink Moon: one of the signature cocktails from Arrowood Farms’ Apiary Bar. Arrowood Farms is a sustainably-minded farm brewery, distillery, and dining destination located in Accord, NY. Arrowood started as a hops farm with sustainable and responsible growing practices and has since evolved into a world-class brewery and craft distillery with an onsite food and beverage program that showcases the bounties of regional farms.

When it comes to their liquids, Arrowood takes pride in sourcing ingredients locally and using traditional methods that let these wonderful ingredients express themselves naturally. 
All of the grains for the spirits are sourced through partnerships with other small NY growers, many of which are located directly in the Hudson Valley. 

To make the Pink Moon, start by finding yourself a bottle of Arrowood Dry Gin – it can be found at a number of local retail shops, which will be listed at the bottom of the page. Or pay a visit to the beautiful farm at 236 Lower Whitfield Rd, Accord, NY to purchase a bottle from the source!
