Wed. 4/5/23 – 4-9:00 PM – Our very special $5 red sangrias – nice cabernet sauvignon, brandy, fresh strawberries, raspberries, a few pineapple pieces for brightness, fruit juices – we try to keep this sangria as dry as we can recognizing that red wine has more sweetness to it than the dryer white. You will still love it!
Thurs 4/6/23 – 4-9:00 PM – Dreams of Cocktails special:
The meaning of the cocktail as a dream symbol: Dreaming of cocktail is generally a bad sign, but not something that you need to be worried about. When you mix two to three alcohols together and consume it, you are bound to get a nice kick in your brain, which might lead to a hangover.
Dreaming of drinking cocktail means that you are going through a tough time at your work-place. Even though cocktail is sweet and tangy at the same time, it is not essential that the dream has any good news for you, especially if you gulp the entire cocktail at once in your dream.
Dreaming of sharing your cocktail with someone means that you have a habit of being dependent on others, when it comes to your problems. No doubt it is a good sign that you have someone with you, but it also means that there’s no way in which you can take the responsibility of your own problems in your waking life.
If you dream of drinking more than one cocktail, it means that you are being too greedy about something in your waking life. This greediness may lead to a lot of complications in future.
Dreaming of spilling cocktail means that you are soon going to find ways to get rid of your current problems.
3 most Common Cocktail Dreams: (1) Throwing a glass of cocktail – Such a dream means that you are an extremely disciplined person in your waking life and people adore you for that. (2) Making a cocktail – Such a dream means that you create problems on your own and then crib about them. (3)
Crying with a glass of cocktail in hands – Such a dream can be an indication of some sort of bad news in the coming time.
The Brandy Bar’s suggested “symbolic cocktails”
The ultimate cocktail: The Martini. Brandy, splash of gin & vermouth -The glass alone says sophistication and has become the universal symbol of cocktail culture.
The cocktail sour: The “Sidecar” – brandy, Cointreau, sour mix
It is believed to be the first sour cocktail in the States, with the Margarita & Daiquiri coming later.
The Old Fashioned – brandy, mulled orange & cherries, sugar, bitters. Named for its status as the earliest cocktail, originally whiskey, bitters and sugar
The French 75 – Brandy, fresh squeezed lemon juice, topped with champagne. A classy spin on the Mimosa but tastier and refreshing.
