The fourth installment of our Hanging with Harris series brings the 2014 JBF Award–nominated restaurant Betony to the Beard House dining room, where general manager and cocktail maestro Eamon Rockey shakes up the delicious Upside-Down Umbrella libation (Hendrick’s Gin with pineapple juice, lemon juice, and absinthe mist).

Host Billy Harris then heads down to the kitchen to see how Bryce Shuman of the 2014 JBF Award–nominated restaurant Betony creates a puffed grain salad with chives, shallots, and labne. 

Inspired by Betony's renowned cocktail program, Jim Ryan of William Grant & Sons ​offers up his own Hendrick’s Gin​ cocktail. Ryan’s Wee Spot of Tea is made with Hendrick’s Gin, Ancho Reyes ancho chile liqueur, orange marmalade, and ginger-mint-orange tea—and served in a delicate teacup. Watch the video below, including footage of chef Bryce Shuman​'s Beard House kitchen demo.
