Biopiracy at Reserve Wine & Food

Inspired by: Biopiracy Collection
Ingredients: Creme de cassis, Amaro Sfumato, House Carob and Chicory falernum, Cava, Sprig of rosemary
GRAM Member Discount: 10% off
Description: We drew inspiration from the dark character of the dresses making the drink as close to black as possible, while the bubbles are to show the contrast in character being a metaphorical two faced nature. Dark in color but fruity, spicy, and bright on the palette.

Crystallization at Lumber Baron

Crystallization at Lumber Baron

Inspired by: Crystallization Collection
Ingredients: Bulliet Bourbon - Frontier Whiskey infused with Orange Peel and Maraschino Cherry served chilled and up over a crystallized sugar stick and Angostura Bitters, finished with a splash of Taittinger Brut Champagne.
GRAM Member Discount: Monday –Thursday $2.00 off signature cocktail and 20% off food
Description: If you already enjoy the Old Fashion cocktail, Crystallization will be your new favorite. This reconstructed Old Fashion has the fruit infused in the The Bulliet instead of muddled in the glass. The sugar and bitter still making their appearance but in a much more beautiful way. There is a great divide in how to make and even finish an Old Fashion, but Head Bartender Kellie Rowland always adds a splash of club soda as the final touch. With Crystallization, you are treated to a splash of Champagne!

GRAM Member Discount: 20% off
Description: This drink is inspired by the Escapism collection by Iris Van Herpen. To Iris, escapism is all about how people find their own ways to reject reality through their entertainment addictions. With the dress line she tries to display a world where nature and technology have blended together. With our drink we hope to do the same by incorporating technology into the natural act of consuming a beverage.

Refinery Smoke at Sidebar G.R.

Inspired by: Refinery Smoke Collection
Ingredients: Bols Genever, Long Road Aquavit, And an ice sphere injected with Hickory smoke and St. Georges Bruto Americano
GRAM Member Discount: 20% off
Description: We wanted to capture the spirit of the refinery smoke piece in our cocktail . We started with a traditional Dutch base of Bols Genever, and modified that with Long Road Aquavit, a traditional Scandinavian spirit. We then fill an ice sphere with Bruto Americano, a wonderful savory and herbal bittering liqueur, and hickory smoke. Like the Refinery Smoke collection, the drink begins as a silvery bright and billowing beverage and as the ice melts it infuses the drink with a darker more umber rust color, much like the dresses it evolves, oxidizes, and is transformed.
