Escape the Cold with Wit & Wisdom

I had to tell you guys about the awesome and tasty hot drinks available at Wit & Wisdom!  You know I love a great happy hour but with the cold weather nipping at your heels, Wit & Wisdom does a perfect job keeping you warm while allowing you to round out your day with a great drink.  From the classic hot toddy to the most perfect hot buttered rum concoction.

The fire place, the best drink artist (aka Aaron the lead bartender), to Wit’s relaxed atmosphere, this is the perfect place to warm up and mellow down.  I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Dinner at Wit & Wisdom

Have you ever been to a place that never ceases to amaze you?!  For me, that is Four Season’s Wit & Wisdom in Baltimore.  The atmosphere, the staff, and the menu, all make this place a perfect recipe for the ultimate go-to for almost anything food/cocktail related.  I had such a great experience at Wit that I decided to make my post a two-part story!  Yes, Wit & Wisdom is that wonderful!

So  I guess you are wondering about the beautiful and tasty food pics, they are the:

Looking for something lighter… Great News….

Wit & Wisdom will offer half off all bottles of Champagne from 10:00 pm to 12:00 midnight every night in the bar at Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore.

 

Inspired by Master Sommelier Laura Maniec’s philosophy at Corkbuzz Wine Studio in New York – that everyone should be able to drink Champagne regularly – “The general perception of Champagne is that it’s only for special occasions,” says Julie Dalton, lead sommelier at Wit & Wisdom. “When people refer to their ‘everyday wine’ it usually means something more affordable than a ‘special occasion’ wine. There’s no reason why Champagne can’t be enjoyed more often. It’s much more diverse than is often realized, and I’m hopeful that this initiative will encourage guests to explore Champagnes outside of their comfort zone and treat them like they would any other wine by trying different regions and styles.”

 

Making Champagne more approachable to the public also means serving it in a more casual way, which is why Wit & Wisdom is offering this tasting experience at the bar only.

Reservations are not required.

Wit & Wisdom in the Four Seasons in Baltimore has somehow put together the perfect recipe for the perfect Happy Hour spot.   The lead bartender, Aaron, makes cocktails like he is making works of art and most importantly they tastes like masterpieces.  Four One OH! teamed up with Wit & Wisdom to give you “Four Must-Have Cocktails to Try This October”.

Wit & Wisdom is one of my favorite happy hour spots I frequent in Baltimore.  The chic atmosphere, the drinks and the food all make Wit & Wisdom a happy hour location that you must try!  While most drink menus at bars can be a bit intimidating, especially if its your first time there, you can say I am here to make your life a lot easier.

While, all of the cocktails are AHMAZING, the Baltimore Southside is my absolute favorite. I love mojitos and this was quite possibly the best version of a mojito that I have ever tasted.  I don’t think I could ever go back.  Here is a rundown of the drinks, including the ingredients, for anyone wanting to try these at home.

Madame Lotus – Wit & Wisdom’s tribute to breast cancer month.  This drink tastes as pink as it looks and the flavors are absolutely amazing!  I didn’t even know that I liked brandy until I tried this drink.

Ingredients:

1.5 oz Right gin

.5 oz apple brandy

.75 oz lemon juice

1 oz spiced strawberry syrup

.5 oz egg white

Directions:

Place all ingredients in cocktail shaker without ice

Shake well

Add ice

Shake well

Double strain into cocktail coupe

Sophisticated Scot- The flavors are just as sophisticated as its name.  The earl grey honey syrup gives this drink a beautiful flavor while the ice sphere allows the drink to balance out perfectly with each sip. 

Ingredients:

1 oz macallan 12

.75 oz lemon juice

1 oz earl grey honey syrup

1 dash of angostura

Directions:

Place all ingredients in cocktail shaker

Shake well

Strain into old fashion glass with ice sphere

Baltimore Southside- Again, my favorite drink! The rum is smooth and the other flavors combine to give even the best tasting mojito a run for its money.  I am still in shock at how good this drink really was.  

Ingredients:

1.5 oz of Papa’s Pilar Blonde 3 year rum

.75 oz  lemon

.5 oz cane syrup

10 to 12 mint leaves

Directions:

Place all ingredients in cocktail shaker including the mint

Add ice

Shake vigorously

Double strain into cocktail coupe

Garnish with mint

Copperhead – A great drink for whisky lovers.  A little strong for me, but I love the traces of pear and lemon in the drink.  

Ingredients:

1.5 oz rye whisky

.5 oz orange juice

.5 oz lemon juice

.75 oz pear gastrique

.5  egg white

Directions:

Place all ingredients in cocktail shaker without ice

Shake well

Add ice

Shake well

Double strain into cocktail coupe

Papa na pua – Tastes just as beautiful and as tropical as its name!  This drink has an awesome combination of ingredients that create a smooth finish.  This drink was inspired by the lead bartender’s childhood in Hawaii.  

Ingredients:

1.5 oz. hibiscus-infused rum

1 oz. fresh grapefruit juice

.5 oz. fresh lime juice

.75 oz. honey syrup

Directions:

Place all ingredients in cocktail shaker with ice

Shake well

Strain into cocktail coupe

Garnish with lime peel and marigolds flower

The flavors blew me away with just about every cocktail and the story behind each one is even better.  In fact, the stories are just as intriguing as watching them make the cocktails.  You can appreciate that these bartenders are true talents in their craft and their drinks truly reflect their talents.

If you happen to find yourself at Wit & Wisdom, seek out Aaron and ask him about the inspiration behind your drink.  Be prepared to be blown away!

Here is the rundown of the happy hour: (from 4pm-7pm)

Daily wine selection is $5, Bartenders’ Choice of the day is $6, Happy Hour Beer priced between $2.50-$4.50, and Happy Hour Snacks $5.
