SUMMER COCKTAILS AT JOE FISH

Joe Fish mixologist Trudy Thomas, appropriately nicknamed the “First Daughter of Bourbon”, invites you to check out the summer cocktails she’s created.  Trudy encourages guests to step outside their comfort zone and try something they wouldn’t normally.  “Women are not as likely to try brown spirit drinks- I’m from Kentucky, and Kentucky women drink bourbon, so I try to convince women outside of Kentucky that it’s ok to drink bourbon.”  The Downtown Manhattan with Maker’s Mark, Grand Marnier, sweet vermouth, and Amaro Nonino is a light summer bourbon option with the citrus of Grand Marnier and additional layers from the Italian Amaro $12.  Trudy also points out most men are afraid of drinking anything pink.  However, she says if you look at a lot of the pre-prohibition cocktails, most of the great ones had a purple or pink hue to them; try the Clover Leaf with Nolet Gin, Combier Rose, lemon and raspberries $13.  Other summer concoctions include the 445 Rickey- Botanist Gin, Cointreau, mango, lime, mint, and club soda $12 and the Strawberry Basil Margarita $13.
