If shared joy is double the joy and shared sorrow is half the sorrow—you’re gonna wanna err on the side of joy (won’t be a problem) with this up-and-coming local Greek-inspired spirit. Carefully crafted in small batches at a local organic vineyard and fashioned from organic grapes infused with wildflower honey and spices, this Joy & Sorrow Rakomelo is tempting taste buds and turning heads—the young sipper is already collecting award finalist nods… and was so popular this summer, it sold out. Now restocked and ready for sipping at select ABC stores—and spicing up menus at local hot spots Aunty Betty’s Gin & Absinthe Bar, Person Street Bar and ShabaShabu—the spiced liqueur with whispers of citrus undertones is ready to sate your spirit neat, on the rocks or in a cocktail. Pro tip: It adds an extra dose of holiday cheer (er—joy?) to your fave eggnog. … And come spring, this year-round liqueur pairs perfectly with mint, sugar and springtime to take your mint julep game next-level. Opa! $43.35, Village District, Davis Circle and Sandy Forks ABC locations; joyandsorrowspirits.com
