Metropole is celebrating Repeal Day with some delectable Prohibition style cocktails. In 21c fashion we pay homage to the past and give it our own modern twist. Tonight’s list includes:
The Metropole bombay sapphire, metropole house made tonic, lime
This classic hardly needs a twist, but our house made tonic pays honor to the tonic recipes of yesteryear and is a refreshing, reviver of the bar staple.
Sazerac bulleit rye, peychaud’s bitters, sugar, absinthe
A time honored New Orleans cocktail, this combination of spirits is a night of Jazz in a glass.
Cincinnati Streetcar brandy, lemon, cointreau, sugar rim, orange zest
An ode to The Sidecar cocktail, the addition of orange zest awakens the taste buds to what makes this cocktail a classic.
When Pigs Fly gin, falernum, creme de violette, blanc vermouth, lime
A floral and delicious spin on the Prohibition favorite, the Aviation.
Knee Knocker gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, blanc vermouth, topped with kava
Derived from a French 75, this smooth cocktail not only has a kick but it may even knock you on your knees.
Fountain Square bulleit rye, cardamaro, rogue vermouth, blanc vermouth, served neat in a snifter
Similar to the cocktail Linden Square the use of Cardamaro, an Italian digestif, will certainly warm up any bootlegger’s cold winter night.
The George Remus gin, lime, spearmint, sugar
Named after the famous Cincinnati bootlegger, this cocktail is a take on The Southside, which was a favorite amongst Al Capone and his fellow gangsters.
