I’m convinced that any drink served in a mason jar just tastes better. This Rosemary Gin & Tonic at Midway Pub, Atlanta, GA turned out to be the perfect summer twist on a cocktail staple.
If I ever have to request a last meal, this is it : a Tuck and Roll cocktail and a Crunchy Gentleman from Holeman and Finch, Atlanta, GA.
Tuck and Roll : Prunier Vs Cognac, Galliano, Celery Bitters, Sorghum, Lime
Crunchy Gentleman : Sliced Black Forest Ham, melted Gruyere
I waited entirely too long to check out this bar/restaurant - Holeman & Finch Public House in Buckhead, GA. It’s where you get New York City worthy cocktails in the big A.
Shown here is the Pun Intended ($12) : High West Double Rye, Kubler Absinthe, Housemade Dill Liqueur, Bar Code Swedish Herb Bitters, Grapefruit, Tonic
The Bloody Best at the Nook, on Piedmont Park in Atlanta. 32 ounces of the best bloody mary mix with Absolut Peppar and skewers of tator tots, steak, olives, jalapeños, bacon, toast and a hardboiled egg. Oh and let’s not forget the meat straw.
Easter’s almost here - time for some carrot infused vodka! I had this bunny themed drink at Sauced, Atlanta. It’s gotta be good for ya, right?
Killer Rabbit : carrot infused vodka, gingered cocchi americano apertif, north georgia apple syrup
I got sauced at Sauced! With a selection of house cocktails, and a full list of classics, there’s something for every taste. Check out the cocktail menu for yourself. My only beef with the bar is that the prices are a couple bucks too much.
This is a Dixie Cup : Four Roses Bourbon, Red Rock Ginger Ale, Sugar Cane Syrup, Lime Twist. It’s a bourbon drink that goes down a little too easily.
Hey Atlantans! I give you a local spin on the Long Island Iced Tea, the Top Shelf Peachtree Tea : Patron Silver, Bombay Sapphire, Absolut, Peach Schnapps, Sour and Coke. This alcoholic beauty is served up at Strip Steak and Sushi in Atlantic Station. Two of these (or maybe only one if you’re not a lush) and you’ll be ready to go shoppin’!
