We would really love to see an influx of people hanging out in downtown Phoenix. That’s why we always try to promote new things happening around the Phoenix capital. Blue Hound Kitchen & Cocktails has just announced their new cocktail menu and it looks pretty fancy. In fact, Stephanie Teslar, Blue Hound’s head bartender, is an expert in her craft, winning “Master Mixologist” at this year’s Foodist Awards. Stephanie has put together some unique drinks for all of us to enjoy. For example:
Copper Pot Cobbler ($11) – lustau fino, lemon, copper city bourbon, kronan Swedish puncsh, plum PX sherry jam. This is light and refreshing and the sherry keeps it dry. Stephanie tops this cocktail with her homemade plum sherry jam to make it rich and sweet.
Baker’s Dozen ($11) – lustau olorroso sherry, cana brava rum, orgeat, giffard banana, sarsaparilla float. It’s light and bubbly. It’s inspired by the old-school soda jerk and getting a cream fizz. The rum and sherry go really well together in an unexpected, confectionary way.
Spaghetti Western ($10) – lustau manzanilla, Prosecco, cappelletti aperativo, herbes de provence syrup. This one is bright and refreshing. It has floral and herbal notes (pictured.)
The Revival ($12) – lustau amontillado, yamizaki 12 year, apple juice, bolivar bitters. This is Stephanie’s take on Pecan Pie. It has warm notes of baking spices.
There is more to choose from. So, if you consider yourself a cocktail enthusiast, Blue Hound is worth checking out.
