SEASONAL SUMMER COCKTAILS
The Eveleigh restaurant has an amazing patio, and a fresh, farm-to-table menu. So when you add fresh, seasonal cocktails to this equation, you have the perfect summer trifecta. Stop by to try a few of their delicious summer-inspired drinks before they’re out of season: Oaxacan Angel (mezcal, agave, Miracle Mile Castillian bitters), Embury Cocktail (Plymouth Navy-strength gin, sherry, Yellow Chartreuse, Miracle Mile Yuzu bitters) and Hotel Nacional (Cuban rum, apricot eau de vie, fresh pineapple, lime, cane sugar).
