May 15, 2020 01:45PM ● By Photography by Jessica Freels

From behind the bar at Lafayette’s Batch & Brine, award-winning mixologist, Casey Carr, carefully crafts cocktails for his loyal patrons. His “Sochu Think You Can Dance”—whiskey, apricot, citrus tea, Chenin blanc, saffron and ginger recipe—won Carr the distinction of “mixologist of the year” at the 2019 Art of Mixology bartender competition.

We asked Carr to create a sophisticated cocktail for Walnut Creek Magazine readers to toast happy hour in quarantine.

1.5 oz. Bourbon

.5 oz. Campari

1 oz. Fresh Squeezed Lemon

.5 oz. Passion Fruit or Pineapple Juice

.25 oz Orgeat Syrup (available at liquor or grocery store)

Shake it, pour over ice, garnish.
