Enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail at home* to celebrate Downtown Atlanta Restaurant Week with the Downtown Atlanta Restaurant Week 2010 Official Cocktail, created by Eric Simpkins, Head MIXOLOGIST at the W Atlanta Downtown’s DRINKSHOP.
The drink is called the Bacardi® Torched Cherry Blossom, and you can create this refreshing summer drink at home all summer long! Here’s how:
Bacardi® Torched Cherry Blossom:
2 oz. Bacardi® Torched Cherry™
1/2 oz. Martini & Rossi dry vermouth
1/2 oz. Martini & Rossi sweet vermouth
1/4 oz. Cherry Heering
1 dash angostura bitters
Stir over ice, strain into a martini glass or over ice in a rocks glass. Garnish with orange peel and cherry.
Sound like too much trouble to attempt at home? Just stop into DRINKSHOP for a pre- or post-dinner drink and order one from the very bar where it was created…and if you’re lucky, maybe the creator himself, Eric Simpkins, will mix it for you!
*365Atlanta.com reminds you to please drink responsibly, don’t drink if you’re under 21, and don’t drink and drive! Use a designated driver or call a cab…or better yet, celebrate Downtown Atlanta Restaurant Week in style and hire a limo for the night!
