Best Shot that Will Knock You on Your Ass

Vyritos at Mum’s

1132 S. Hanover St., (410) 547-7415

This dark and hazy old school dive is exactly the kind of place you’d expect to find the traditionally homemade Lithuanian spirit Vyritos (pronounced “vid-it-us”). The house recipe for the high-powered grog blends grain alcohol, honey, ginger, whole cloves, allspice, cinnamon sticks, whole peppercorns, lemon and orange zest, caraway, cardamom, and nutmeg. The flavor profile is like no other. The texture is silken. The burn, barely noticeable, more like a pleasant warmth. You can knock back four or five and feel A-OK, but you will pay for them dearly later on. Consider yourself warned.
