Noah Bush is opening a new bar on third and Lansing called Hodges Bend. He'll be serving up classic cocktails and wine. Bush stopped by to create some spooky Halloween inspired cocktails. The Satan’s Whiskers cocktail is made with Gin, sweet vermouth, dry vermouth, Grand Marnier, orange juice, and orange bitters.
The Corpse Reviver #1 has Cognac, Applejack, and sweet vermouth. "Corpse reviver was a style of cocktail that was meant to be a pick-me-up the next day after a night of drinking, hence the name," Bush said.
