My Safe Word Is “Sanctuary”

An obscure Golden Age cocktail with a murky origin story, the original Sanctuary belonged to a greater group of quinquina-based cocktails prepared with aromatized wine, Dubonnet Rouge.  Our version is fortified with bourbon and barrel-aged, imbuing it with flavors of butterscotch, toffee, and nutmeg, before we blend it with picon bitters and triple sec.  A full-bodied and decadent cocktail, My Safe Word is “Sanctuary” has become one of our guests’s (and staff’s) favorite drinks.
