Spirit Guide: Cole’s May Cocktails

May 9th, 2012 — 6:03pm

Our cocktails for mid-May till mid-June celebrate Spring and all it has to offer to the fullest. The Red Car Bar is bringing back requested & popular Manhattan & Old-Fashioned styles that were created by its talented bartenders.

For our Old-Fashioned style we are bringing back “Strawberry Fields” created by Leandro DiMonriva. This is a beautiful Old-Fashioned consisting of Plymouth Gin, angostura bitters, and a house-made strawberry lemon balm syrup.

For our Manhattan style we will be bring back Adi Kancharla’s “Irish Spring.” This March-inspired cocktail contains Jameson, Lillet Red, Licor 43, Bitterman’s Boston Bitters, Peychaud Bitters, and a Creme de Violet rinse.

Lastly our 1930′s style is Cole’s Mint Julep. This Julep is inspired by Cole’s bar menu from the 1930′s which added Rum to the Mint Julep. Our 1930′s creation is created by Brent Falco, and is a mix of Bourbon & Barcard, Fresh Mint, & a brown sugar cube served in a Mint Julep cup.

Come down and visit and ask your bartenders about our creations and how we were inspired.
