We’re all for the occasional late night glass of pinot…or cab franc or merlot. But on most evenings in, we prefer a glass of something a little lighter. These cozy homemade nightcaps from modern apothecary, Urban Moonshine, do just the trick.

Urban Moonshine is known for their powerfully healing digestive bitters, and we’re always looking for new ways to work these unique blends into our daily bevs. These recipes from founder, Jovial King, are the perfect way to wind down from a stressful day with beauty, ease, adaptogens and digestive bitters.

Earlier this week, we shared three herbal tonic recipes to sip on in the morning. Learn to make the energizing drinks for a.m., then swap over to these late night brews below…
