Hair of the Goat

Hair of the Goat

Now you can take a little bit of the Goat home with you. The pride of Gem Village,
the Billy Goat Saloon, is selling its Bloody Mary mix to go. Appropriately called Hair of the Goat, the mix is available at the Billy Goat as well as bars and stores across SW Colorado

Like the bar, the mix is sold in a no-frills, black-labeled mason jar. It’s touted as the perfect combination of zest and flavor, which can be mixed with vodka, gin, tequila or “whatever floats your goat.”

The mix, several years in the works, is the spicy brainchild of head goat herder and mixmaster Ashleigh Tarkington. “I put my heart and energy into everything I do and wanted to wait until I could give this project 100 percent,” she said. “I am so proud of what we have created and couldn’t be happier with the finished product.” Tarkington has been perfecting the recipe since buying the Goat in 2003, serving more than a thousand Bloodies every week.

To get some Hair of the Goat, show up to the launch party at the Billy Goat this Sat., Oct. 26.
