COCKTAILS - SEASONAL
Blackberry Basil Smash
Our take on a modern classic. Beefeater gin, basil leaves, lemon juice and house-made blackberry simple
USD 11.5
Bramble
Created by London's Dick Bradsell in the 1980's. Beefeater gin, fresh lemon juice, simple, creme de mure (blackberry liqueur)
USD 12
Chartreuse Swizzle
Lime juice, pineapple juice, falernum, Chartreuse and freshly grated nutmeg. Created in the early 2002 by Marcovaldo Dionysos in San Francisco. This cocktail uses the herbal liqueur Chartruese as the base spirit and marries it wonderfully with the essence of the Caribbean Swizzle cocktail
USD 16.5
Enzoni
Muddled grapes, lemon juice, simple, campari and beefeater gin. Created in the early 2000s by Vincenzo Errico while bartending at the famous Milk & Honey bar in NYC. This cocktail like a cross between a Gin Sour and a Negroni, super refreshing on a hot summer day
USD 12

We had dinner Saturday night out on the very large deck. It overlooks the lake, with great views at sunset. The cocktails were all delicious. The food came out fast and as we ordered. The staff was very friendly and made you feel comfortable.
