ALLEY 6 86’D CANDY CAP BITTERS • $20 Alley 6 founders Krystle and Jason Jorgensen are devoted forag- ers—heck, they’re even members of the Mycological Society of America, so it’s no surprise that they’ve combined their passions for distilling and wild ingredients to create Candy Cap Bitters. Al- ley 6 combines foraged Candy Cap mushrooms (once dried, these sweet mushrooms smell of maple syrup!) and baking spices to Alley 6’s base rye spirit, and the non-potable bitter is left to age in oak. Add 86’d Candy Cap Bitters to an Old Fashioned, on vanilla ice cream, in waffle batter, or try them in Jason’s The Fun Guy.
