Evergreen Restaurant and Tavern EntranceHum Botanical SpiritHappy Douglas at the TavernThanks to Susan Henry, Evergreen guest and Facebook fan, for asking for the recipe for the Humito cocktails we served at Thanksgiving that are made using Hum.

But what is Hum?

It’s a botanical spirit modeled after the great Amaros of Italy. Made by celebrated mixologists Adam Seger of Chicago and Joe McCanta from London, they infuse Hum in a still pot with fair trade hibiscus, ginger root, green cardamom and Kaffir limes. It’s a beautifully crafted, balanced American Botanical Spirit.

Hum isn’t yet available in the entire U.S. for distribution, but you can visit to find your closest retailer or bar/restaurant.  Of course, you’re always welcome at the Tavern at the Evergreen for Humito’s and Yosemite adventures!
