Hello my loves!
How are you today?
It’s Friday and, as if that was not good enough, it’s a big holiday here in Brazil!
Let’s talk about our Open Bar inspired by the birthday man of the week?
We chose 3 wonderful drinks inspired on Clint Eastwood to cheer up your weekend, so choose your favorites and prepare your glasses once we will make a nice toast at the end.
- Pabst Blue Ribbon
The Pabst Blue Ribbon is an American beer from Pabst Brewing Company, originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and currently based in Los Angeles.
Its name comes from the blue ribbons tied around the bottleneck between 1882 and 1916.
To compose the original Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer, the products go through a rigorous selection process as only the best hops and grains are used, which resulted on the Best of America award in 1893 during the Columbia World Exposition.
- Côte Rôtie
Côte Rôdie wine is perhaps one of the most elegant and seductive wines in the world, with a great complexity of flavors and aromas.
With a certain freshness in the end, they are usually medium or full bodied wines with silky textures that please the most exotic palates due to the floral and white elegance of the Viognier grapes.
This type of wine has an uprooting regime that varies according to each crop.
Xavier Gerard owns Domaine Gérard and presented Clint Eastwood during the Lyon festival with a bottle of Côte Rôtie in a wonderful Jeroboam (those wooden boxes for wine and champagne).
- The Clint Eastwood
With slightly spicy Bulleit Bourbon, Vya spiced vermouth, orange bitters, and sweet Italian Amarena cherries, this drink was created by Mike Robertson, Head Bartender of The Driftwood Room in Portland.
1 1⁄2 oz. Bulleit bourbon
3⁄4 oz. Vya sweet vermouth
2 dashes Regan’s orange bitters
1 Amarena cherry, for garnish
Instructions: combine bourbon, vermouth, and bitters in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled martini glass; garnish with cherry.
I choose the drink, and you?
This was our Happy Hour of the week dedicated to dear Mr. Clint Eastwood.
We hope to see many more birthdays of this kind human being and wish a new year of life filled with good things in your life.
