Oh…my…gosh. Mimosa Grill has put together an array of new spring cocktails that are out of this world by using local farmer’s market ingredients, house-infused liquors, and fresh herbs.
These handcrafted drinks are as simple as can be but offer up the most exquisite flavor combinations that take your palate on the most frivolous ride of it’s life. They’ve got a Strawberry Basil Martini with Ketel One, fresh berries and local micro basil, a Kiwi Peach Mojito with mint, local peaches, kiwi, and rum, and a Mimosa Cocktail with Knob Creek, peach bitters, mint, and a splash of their signature Mimosa tea. There’s a Hendrick’s Gin martini with cucumber and chipotle, and a house-made sangria with Prosecco.
If you’re like me and want to recreate every fabulous drink that you come across at your own home, follow these little tricks:
1). Write the ingredients down from the menu, and even use your smart phone to take a picture of the description.
2). Don’t just drink the cocktail (you lush, you!). Pay close attention to the ratios, whether it’s more sweet than tart, if there’s a filler like club soda, or if there’s a special element like something spicy.
3). Feel free to ask the waiter about the ingredients, because they don’t always list things like simple syrups on the menu. Once you’ve done this, it’s all about trial and error. And boy, do I love trial and error.
