Thurs 8/11 – 4-9:00 PM Animal cocktails
In the world of drinks, there have been some pretty weird and wacky names. Perhaps unremarkable is a drink named after a famous person or a popular place. Then there are a lot of drinks with sexually explicit names, Sex on the Beach, etc. But we have chosen 5 named after our animal friends because some days it is a toss-up as to which we like more, our animal friends or our human friends. But that’s another story.
Some drinks, like the Barking Spider, bring a smile with the first sip; others, like the Moscow Mule are now classics and have become a part of the standard bar menu. Some 70’s sippers include the Greyhound and its gin counterpart the Salty Dog. The Horse’s Neck is a long drink that dates back to the colonial period (its signature comes from the long lemon curl that hangs over the lip of the glass).
So here goes, things may get a bit hairy as we take a boozy cocktail tour of the animal kingdom at The Brandy Bar + Cocktails. We recommend that while sipping, you think of one of your favorite movies the drink might remind you of or inspire your selection.
