Cozy up to this fall-inspired cocktail

A welcome to even more cocktails that tend to favor spirits from the dark side, or imbibing doses of scotch and bourbon neat just gives us the warm and fuzzies… literally. To highlight these spirited tastes of the Fall, we hooked up with Fado Irish Pub in Buckhead to sample some of their new seasonally-inspired cocktails that you can make at right home for snuggly drinking in front of the fire.

Van Gogh Cool Peach Vodka

Get a jump on peach season…in liquid form.

I don’t know about you, but I really wish this weather would figure out what it wants to do. Is it winter? Is it spring?

The “Fancy Pants” Burger at Grindhouse

Oh, you fancy, huh?

How do you stand out among a sea of burger joints? Make your burgers special. Each Tuesday brings something new and delicious to Grindhouse when they add a unique addition to their regular menu. Today’s special? A thick, juicy 1/2 pound burger on a fresh baked bun, cooked to any temp (as rare as you want) topped with aged white cheddar, habanero pimento cheese, sliced cornichons, field greens, and a house-made tarragon mustard, served with fresh cut fries and a chipotle honey mustard dipping sauce, all for 10 bucks. If you’re feeling frisky, add on a boozy milkshake and sit on that badass patio of theirs. It’s a perfect score in our book.
