3/4 oz. Blood Orange Juice, fresh
3/4 oz. Meyer Lemon Juice, fresh
1/2 oz. Spiced Honey Syrup (equal parts local honey & hot water, with a secret blend of spices), or more to taste if needed

Shake, fine-strain into a Champagne flute, top with Prosecco, garnish with a small slice of fresh blood orange attached to the edge of the glass
ST. FEUILLIEN BREWERY, BELGIUM
Get yourself a bottle of St. Feuillien Triple at the Walnut Creek Yacht Club today! This beer has a white, smooth, and very compact head. Its pale amber color is very characteristic revealing a distinctive maltiness. It has a rich aroma with a unique combination of aromatic hops, spices and the typical bouquet of fermentation - very fruity. Secondary fermentation in the bottle gives it a unique aroma due to the presence of yeast. An exceptional, lingering taste thanks to its density and its long storage period, and at a hefty 8.5% ABV, it's sure to warm you up on these cold winter nights. And don't forget to get yourself a bottle of 3 Philosophers beer while they last. Only a couple of bottles left!
