Safer Than Water by The Hoxton’s Brett Adams

Posted by on

We love contemporary twists on classics (did we cry at A Star is Born? You’ll have to check our tissue box to know for sure) and wanted to feature a cocktail that celebrates the past while also feeling of the moment. The Hoxton's basement bar, 2NW5, boasts such a cocktail on their menu, and their beverage director, Brett Adams shared his recipe with us. Enjoy the Safer than Water, a riff on an Old Fashioned featuring Jacobsen Co.’s Raw Carrot Flower Honey , either at home or at this cozy Portland spot.

Serves 3-4



  1. In a mixing glass containing ice, add honey, vermouth, cacao, bitters and whiskey over ice and stir until blended with a bar spoon. 
  2. Add 2 drops of saline and stir once more.
  3. Strain over ice into a rocks glass.
  4. Garnish with orange and enjoy.
