NEW COCKTAIL MENU
We recently teamed up with our friends at East London Liquor Co. to create a new exciting cocktail list.
The theory and principles we focused on were basic.
Drinks for everyone’s appetite, natural home grown, American flavours without the ‘classics’ taking control of the list.
Wanting to associate with the new and old pop cultures of “Americana,” in a way the drinks, like the food, can be on the right side of our comfort/soul food menu.
The gents at East London Liquor Co. and our team of Diner bartenders went back and forth on ideas and tastes for a good wee while. Let’s be honest we were not complaining, anyone who has made it out to their Bow Wharf Distillery will not be disappointed, and that’s before you get into their award winning Gins and heavily laden back bar…
This new exciting list made up of 12 drinks, has some of our old Diner favs, such as the Tommy’s style Margarita, the Mojito and a few styles of everyone’s brunching fav the Bloody Mary.
What will catch your attention are the spin off options available, The Margarita and its smokey sexy Mezcal offering that pairs so well with many of our juicy meat options, particularly the Diablo Burger.
The New World Fashioned, with your choice of Sonoma county 100% Rye or East London Liquor Co. Navy strength rum will surely warm you up in these coming chilly evenings.
We based all of our drinks on exciting, quality ingredients that take little fuss to put together, and get from bartender to your hands in adequate time. The list has some very creative, addictive flavours that will pair with your menu choices as well as fulfil your palate’s desire.
My favourite’s definitely the Midnight Express with the 100% Rye. The smooth cold brew and sharp, yet sweet raspberry level this one out. Come in and try them for yourself, now available in all of the sites.
