This morning General Manager Monica Teligades & Mixologist Matt Weir from Liberty Station American Tavern & Smokehouse joined us for Barguments and 'Presidential' inspired cocktails! Liberty Station American Tavern and Smokehouse is launching a new cocktail menu with a presidential nod, and they are phenomenal. The new cocktails are all handcrafted with fresh, unique ingredients and given an Americana twist by giving them each nomenclatures that match a specific president’s personalities or nicknames. We tasted the "The Haberdasher" (Harry S. Truman) and "The Great Legislator" (James Madison).
Here is just a sample of what is happening at Liberty:
The Teddy Bear (named after President Theodore Roosevelt who not only was called “Teddy” but also had an affinity for bear hunting) has all the warm and fuzzy feels of a Rum Old Fashioned in a glass with Brugal 1888 Rum, Cocchi Rosa, Punt y Mes, and Broadbent Rainwater Madeira ($13)
The Boatman references President James Garfield’s work on the Ohio canals in his youth, but it’s more fun to think tiki and tropical boat drinks when it comes to this creative concoction featuring Cutwater Bali Hai Rum, Myers Dark Rum, Orgeat, passionfruit, pineapple, and fresh lime ($13)
The Actor is inspired by the country’s 40th president, Ronald Regan, who inspired Liberty Station to have “no limits of… imagination and wonder” when it came to making The Actor, a summertime take on a Moscow Mule with Stoli Vodka, Giffard Peach, fresh lime and ginger beer ($10)
