We told you the story of the lounge in Jennifer Fickley-Baker’s recent post, and the beverage menu follows through with some “Curious Cocktails,” “Worldly Wines” and “Baffling Beers.” (The cozy space offers chickpea popcorn for noshing, but no food.)
Favorites include The Conjurita, a margarita with tequila, Cointreau, simple syrup and lime juice – and a little magic trick comes with the presentation. The Coney Negroni replaces the classic gin in the drink with bourbon. And for a kick, Pepper’s Ghost combines pineapple vodka and habanero lime. Non-alcoholic beverages include the Seashore Sweet, a nod to the former candy store that used to be in this location, made with lemonade and blue cotton candy.
Wines are a combination and Old and New World, all offered by the glass including Veuve Clicquot Champagne. And you’ll find local beers on the list, such as Orlando Brewing Blonde Ale and Cigar City Tampa-Style Lager.
Plenty to whet your appetite for dinner at either adjacent restaurant. Here’s the cocktail menu to help you plan ahead:
