Welcome spring with a pop of color and a punch of flavor with the new numbers on our cocktail list!
Sam Royds, our Lead Bartender, and Liz Smith, Bartender, have put together some floral and flavorful sips to bring our cocktail menu from late winter into spring.
When creating these spring sippers, Sam sought to use brightly colored and flavored floral liqueurs reminiscent of flowers blooming and herbs growing. The ingredients are meant to evoke all that comes from the earth in this season: flowers, grasses, herbs, roots, and spices.
The Buckle Bunnies, for instance, is a feminine approach to whiskey that pairs Bully Boy white whiskey and Meletti 1870 bitters with deeply herbal yellow Chartreuse, delicately floral Crème de violette, and a grapefruit and thyme reduction. It takes its namesake from the old Western slang term for rodeo groupies!
The Fox Fizz is also Sam’s twist on an Aperol spritz, with the addition of Galliano, lemon, cava, kumquat syrup, and rhubarb bitters.
Finally we have the Charlotte Swing, Liz’s first contribution to our cocktail menu, which harkens back to her hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina! This drink embodies Liz’s love for tequila by featuring Los Altos Blanco tequila, cherry shrub, lemon verbena, lime, and soda.
These new additions to our menu will remain on our list through the height of spring into mid-June, so you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy all three!
