Winter Cocktails

by Josh Theisinger

Christmas is over and Valentine's isn't quite here.  So before the lovey-dovey cocktails come in, there is still plenty of time to get some of those winter-warmers in here to make the time go by more quickly.

Starting with the creamy silk martini... our bartenders expertly mix smooth jim beam maple, kahlua and a shot of rich espresso with just a splash of cream for a silky, sweet martini.

Our next drink is the modern royal. For you bubbly wine lovers who want a little more of a kick, we combine absolut vodka, st germain elderflower liqueur, grapefruit juice and lime juice before topping it with our house moscato. It's a new twist on the kir royal, but it still gives you the sweet and bubbly finish of the classic cocktail.

For those of you who are a little more adventurous, we have the winter sour. Much like your classic whiskey sour, it combines whiskey with lemon juice and simple syrup. But at the end, it is finished off with just a splash of cabernet wine. This still gives the essence of your classic whiskey sour, but ours features a smooth, warming finish of a "heavier" wine that is the epitome of winter.

If that doesn't catch your eye, we also have a new hot drink available. Our wintermint coffee is the perfect way to warm up on the blistering cold nights. It starts with bailey's irish cream, godiva dark chocolate liqueur and a healthy pour of creme de menthe before being topped with coffee and whipped cream.

It won't be long before we swap these out in favor of some cupid-inspired cocktails.  So be sure to stop out and try them while you can!
