Criminal Mischief Available For Your Cocktail Mixing Pleasure At Garden Grove Sunday

If you’ve followed my Instagram feed lately, you may have noticed that I have a new obsession. Craft cocktails at home!

My obsession started with the purchase of Death & Co: Modern Classic Cocktails. Something about the explanations on why this type of glass or why a drink is served on ice versus without really spoke to me. Before you knew it, my liquor selection had increased exponentially. I knew I was hooked when I started to make my own bitters.

Naturally, I was excited when I heard Garden Grove had collaborated with T Leggett of the Roosevelt to make beer in the spirit of vermouth but hearing T and Brandon Peck have created cocktail recipes for the beermouth to be used in?! Ecstatic!

Criminal Mischief – our collaboration brew with the Roosevelt’s T Leggett brings a unique twist to craft Vermouth.

Featured by Robey Martin (“Bitter is the New Black”) for Richmond Mag in early March, the long-awaited release happens this Sunday, May 15th at the brewery’s taproom in Carytown, RVA after months of barrel ageing.

This “beer-mouth” was brewed with an assortment of locally grown ingredients (aronia berry, rosemary, lemon thyme) and botanicals from around the globe (bitter orange, chamomile, vanilla, hibiscus flowers, juniper berries, coriander, fresh Valencia orange peel); along with an addition of Cabernet Franc grapes grown by Naked Mountain Winery & Vineyard in Markham, VA.

A limited number of 32oz Growler fills will be available for sale beginning at 2pm on Sunday, May 15th only and will be accompanied by a cocktail recipe card courtesy of craft mixologists T Leggett & Brandon Peck of the Roosevelt.

Beyond this limited release, the one-of-a-kind brew will be available for several weeks on tap at the brewery- and for a very limited time on tap or via unique concoction at the Roosevelt in Church Hill.
