Atlanta’s Southern Cocktails

Get to sippin’ y’all!

There are two things most every Southerner can appreciate: patio weather and a perfectly mixed cocktail. And while our current 90 degree temps aren’t necessarily the perfect patio weather, what better way to combat this blazing heat than with a cool drink in hand? Head to one of these restaurants and try some of the city’s best Southern-inspired cocktails. One sip and you’ll swear you’re on your grandma’s front porch in a rocking chair.


Smashburger ATL

Smashing…simply smashing…

I think it’s best that we get this out of way first and foremost. Yes. This is a post about a burger joint. Yes. Atlanta already has an overabundance of said burger joints. Yes. The burger trend is saturated with no signs of slowing down. Ok. Now that that’s out of the way, ask us do we care that another burger joint is after our hearts and beloved cholesterol count? Not in the least.


New York State Of… Pizza

A good slice of ‘za is hard to come by…

You’ve heard it all before. There are two things that can’t be recreated outside of New York City – Pizza and Bagels. As a native New Yorker, I’d be inclined to agree. Some claim it’s the water that makes all the difference. Some claim it’s just because you’re outside New York City. There are many compelling arguments, clearly. But, what if I were to tell you that you could get a good slice of New York style pizza right here in the A? It’s true, and it was found at the most random place too, Il Bacio Pizzeria &Trattoria.


Recap: Miller Lite Summer Rooftop Series

Making summer count…one beer cocktail at a time.

The Perfect Drink for the 4th of July

The American Sweetheart

Whiskey is truly an American liquor. Don’t believe us? Listen to that Don McLean song, “American Pie” (“…Them good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye, and singin’, this’ll be the day that I die…”)  You can’t argue with Don. As such, the perfect drink to celebrate American independence must include whiskey. So, we present to you the “American Sweetheart” cocktail.  Shake together one ounce each of bourbon whiskey and Southern Comfort, a dash of dry vermouth, sour mix to taste, and serve it up in a rocks glass. One sip and you’ll be shouting, “Oh! Sweet land of liberty!” Enjoy.

Avion Tequila

Elevate your taste in tequila this summer…

Nothing says summer like a tall, refreshing margarita. Thoughts of sitting on a porch or beach with this cold beverage in hand just feels right. Whether you enjoy yours tart with salt encompassing the rim or sweet with a halo of sugar, the most important ingredient to its overall success lies in the tequila used to make it.


Double Zero Napoletana

Double Zero Napoletana Pizza

Dolce far niente….while you’re OTP.

Dolce far niente. In Italian, this translates to “the sweetness of doing nothing.” Now, I feel that I am an expert at this, so it’s surprising to me that I’m not actually Italian. This seems to be a way of life that true Italians live by. And why not? Less worry, more pizza I say – and at Double Zero Napoletana, dolce far niente doesn’t seem far from reach.
