With Gram & Dun's recent introduction of their new seasonal dinner menu, it only makes sense that they craft new cocktails to match the transition into the fall/winter time. Creating the cocktail menu was a highly collaborative process between Bread & Butter Concepts Director of Beverage, Scott Tipton, and the bar staff at Gram & Dun, mixing pop culture references with seasonal flavors for one of Gram & Dun's largest cocktail menu changes to date. With that in mind, here are a few of our favorites that will roll out with the new menu in early December.
Bambo No. 5 A little bit of apple brandy and pomegranate make this margarita-esque cocktail the perfect cold weather drink for when you're longing for the beach. Hawaiian black sea salt lines half of the rim for a touch of complexity.
Curious Gourd There's a season for every ingredient, and it's no secret that pumpkin has made its way into everyone's obsession during fall. While you've seen it in spiced latte's, Gram & Dun is repurposing pumpkin into a cocktail form with this sweet drink. The twist? They've added a touch of banana, hence the "Curious George" name reference. Clever huh?
Hendrick Lamar We're not sure about diving into a swimming pool of liquor, but we are sure that this new cocktail is the way we want our gin martini. An apricot liquor gives it a nice fall note with a little absinthe for a funky twist.
Averell Lavigne If you can't already tell, Gram & Dun's bar team is pretty good at puns. You know what else they're good at? Making full-flavored, drinks like the Averell Lavigne. This spirit offers tartness from Averall plum paired with spice from Cardamaro and a house-made almond orgeat. Egg white, lemon, and a garnish of nutmeg finish off this silky-sweet drink.
Betty Childs No matter if you're a nerd or a cool kid, this cocktail will have you cheering (and cheers-ing) for more. This drink is as sweet as its name inspiration. Mimicking that of a classic strawberry rhubarb pie, the Betty Childs allows you to drink your pie if you're into that sort of thing (we are).
