In Poland, they just turn that grass into vodka and call it a day. As a tribute to both, the lively bar at Sticks has created the Mulligan Mule, made from Polish Zubrówka vodka f lavored with a rare, pungent wild grass favored by bison. "We're always trying to bring in new ideas and flavors," says resort mixologist Meg Nielson. Zubrówka is a supremely flavorful vodka, with notes of lavender, vanilla and, of course, cut grass. Zubrówka pairs well with apple, so Nielson has devised a cool Mulligan Mule spiked with warm flavors reminiscent of fall. —Larry Harland I N G R E D I E N T S : • 1½ oz.
