The Story Behind The Bahia 1836
If you love seasonal cocktails, but find eggnog to be a bit boring, the Bahia 1836 might just be the drink for you. Invented by Ryan Smith at The Roosevelt Room in Austin, the cocktail is lighter than eggnog, but carries the same creamy, decadent mouthfeel thanks to heavy cream and one whole egg added to the mix.
An ode to the Bahia pecan tree, the oldest pecan tree and one that’s been grown in Texas since the state’s independence with Mexico in 1836, this sweet and savory cocktail brings together bourbon, sherry, and Amaro Nonino with the unexpected flavors of sesame oil, cheese, and salt.
