On the House: Chickasaw Trails from Highball & Harvest

Written By Scott Joseph On February 21, 2019

Chickasaw Trail Cocktail

The folks at Highball & Harvest are serious about their cocktails. After all, highball is part of its name (although it’s a winking reference to a train reference).

In this episode of On the House, bartender Noelle Benlolo demonstrates the restaurant’s Chickasaw Trails cocktail. Its named for the Chickasaw plum that grows in the northern part of the state, and plum syrup is part of the recipe.

Watch the video, then highball it over to the bar and give it a try.
