Cocktails at Hearth

Hugh Higgins knows his liquor. Before getting into the restaurant business, the proprietor of Hearth spent more than three decades climbing the ranks of the wine and spirit industry—he knows the finest labels to stock and how to blend a cocktail worth going out for.

From the Old Fashioned Wisdom to the Spiced Apple Mule, Hearth’s potable scientists put their own twist on classic cocktails, while the Original Cosmo proves they know not to mess with perfection.

The restaurant’s southern-tinged comfort food and hospitality also pair nicely with its superb wine list and the Peoria area’s largest whiskey selection.
