When people are asked to associate drinks and holidays, most folks think two words. Christmas. Eggnog. Well, we felt this did an injustice to all the other drinks and holidays out there! So we put together a tidy list for you to observe as we dive headfirst into the warm summer months. Continue reading to find out which four drinks we’re recommending. Then venture out of the brutal sun and into Printers Alley and we’ll pour you a couple.
1. The Big Easy Hurricane on Memorial Day
Splash into summer the right way with this New Orleans-style favorite that screams let the party begin! Concocted with Bayou Silver rum, triple sec, orange juice, pineapple juice, and Myers’s rum floater, this drink will knock your socks off just in time to prop those feet up outside on some patio furniture while you enjoy catching a summer breeze! You don’t have to be in New Orleans to party down Lousiana-style! Order one up tonight!
2. Slow & Low Old Fashioned on Father’s Day
You don’t have to be a father (or a member of the cast of Mad Men) to enjoy this staple of every man’s liquid diet. This drink is sure to make even the most devout whiskey snob sit right up in his or her chair and take note. Infused with raw local honey from Pennsylvania, air-dried navel oranges from Florida and a pinch of rock candy, Hochstadter’s Rock & Rye whiskey truly sets this drink apart from its inferior counterparts. We promise you have never tasted an old-fashioned like this. “Cheers” to your dad and have a drink like him!
3. Lawrenceburg Lemonade on 4th of July
Celebrate the 4th of July while sipping on a mainstay of an American classic, Bulleit Bourbon! Inspired by Augustus Bulleit, who made his signature high-rye whiskey in the mid-1800s, Bulleit Bourbon is known for its spicy character and a finish that is consistently clean and smooth. Get cool during the dog days of summer with a Lawrenceburg Lemonade, which expertly combines the punch of Bulleit with a kick of lemon and lemonade. And when the Fourth rolls around, look no further than this American classic to pay tribute to our founding fathers and independence!
4. Nola Sweet Tea on Labor Day
It might seem years away now, but before you know it Labor Day will be upon us. And we want to celebrate the fruits of your labor by pouring everything we got into this Bayou favorite: Firefly Sweet Tea vodka, triple sec, peach schnapps, sour, sprite, and lemon. The fine folks of Firefly Distillery in South Carolina innovatively came up with the idea to infuse sweet tea and vodka back in 2008 and the world has not been the same since! Take the day off and come ‘round our bar to enjoy this Southern favorite, lord knows you’ve been working hard.
