Foxy Baby

Aka "A Weekend in Julian"

Sip into refreshing Autumn Bliss

Fall is upon us, and with it comes the yearning for flavors that embody the season. Enter the "Foxy Baby" cocktail - a clever blend of flavors that will transport you to a cozy autumn wonderland. Created as a collaboration between two beloved San Diego companies, Clever Fox and Healthy On You, this refreshing libation has quickly become the talk of the town.

Inspired by a recent event in Rancho Santa Fe, where everyone kept saying "this tastes just like I'm in Julian!" The Foxy Baby has earned the nickname "A Weekend in Julian". Just like a trip to the charming town of Julian, known for its apple orchards and rustic charm, this cocktail embraces the flavors and nostalgia of those memorable autumn getaways.

Our Clever Fox Silver Rum lends its smoothness to the mix, while the Healthy On You "Spice Spice Baby" spice blend adds a delightful kick of warmth and zing. Cinnamon, black pepper, ginger, cloves and more dance together harmoniously, creating a sensory explosion that you won't be able to resist.

We included a recipe for one, which you can make in a shaker, and a batch you can make in a pitcher and serve over ice at your next gathering!
