One of the cocktail trends for fall is lower-proof cocktails. The One-Eyed Willie at CBD Provisions in The Joule Hotel DGAF about that trend. This boozed-up rum delight is the perfect way to end the summer, thanks to the bright orange and pineapple flavors and the tiny bit of complexity from a couple of dashes of Creole bitters.
Stop into CBD and get one of these libations to accompany your Berkshire pigs head carnitas and you'll feel like you're in the islands — or make it at home and turn on some Bob Marley.

3/4 oz. fresh lime
