Tag: Southern Art and Bourbon Bar
While ingredients such as bitters and shrubs affect a drink’s flavor, cocktail makers also experiment with altering a drink’s mouthfeel—like steeping a spirit in beeswax. A collaboration between 18.21 Bitters, ASW Distillery, and Southern Art & Bourbon Bar is bringing this unique method to Atlanta, but only for a little bit.
For a few years there, it seemed that bourbon was the dominant spirit in Atlanta, a natural result of local (and national) restaurants embracing Southern foods and cooking techniques. One obvious outcome of the trend was Southern Art and Bourbon Bar, which opened in 2011: It occupies a space in the InterContinental Buckhead that was previously a French restaurant and accompanying cognac bar. Bourbon Bar offers more than seventy varieties of our region's whiskey, specializing in flights but also offers cocktails like Run for the Black Roses, made with Woodford Reserve, blackberry shrub, mint, soda, and rose water.
