I can barely contain my excitement for our forthcoming event at Heist Brewery!!
Please join us on 3/10 for the hippest party in Charlotte. DJ Justin Aswell will be spinning the best of Canada while Stefan serves up some Forty Creek Whisky cocktails for $5 bones. Enjoy hockey on the telly and some special surprises from our neighbors to the north along the way!
Y’all, I always love it when our brand ambassadors come visit, but I am really, really excited about this one! Trevor Schneider, the primo BA for Reyka Vodka is coming to town so we’re giving him the ultimate VIP treatment and throwing him behind the bar at Heist Brewery!
Here’s the deal, Thursday 8/20 8pm
Spend a couple hours with Trevor and have a few fancy cocktails.
P.S. This is kind of important…Bring some pencils, paper and maybe some markers, we’ll be donating them to a local elementary school!
I love how Charlotte and it’s people are getting excited about food, beer and booze. I mean, who doesn’t loved an expertly crafted cocktail?
A friend of mine at Liberate Your Palate has created a unique experience for just those people, Cheers to the Queen is cocktail tour that allows consumers to visit different bars and try cocktails featured specifically for this program.
Here’s the breakdown. Go to Liberate Your Palate to buy your passbook. Take your book to places like Heist Brewery, Dogwood Southern Table or one of the other 13 participating venues and receive a tasty libation and a stamp for your passbook. Simple as that.
Cheers to the Queen runs until September 15th, I’ve already got mine, join me and we can tour the town together!
2014 has been such a great year for us, not just for me and boozinQC but also for the Queen City. We’ve had some pretty great cocktails come out of some of our favorite bars this year and I want to take a moment to highlight my favorites.
The Stow Away
Made by Stefan from Heist Brewery, this Sailor Jerry Tiki cocktail is sweet, fruity and perfect for warmer weather.
Sailor Jerry Rum
The Scotchie Pippen
This cocktail has been etched into my memory since the day I had it. Created by Andy Maurer at Soul for a tasting event with Glenfiddich Brand Ambassador, David Allaridice. It’s not readily available now but I’m sure the fellas at Soul could make a great substitute.
Pure Intentions Cold Brew
Glenfiddich infused whipped cream garnish
Roasted Jalapeno Margarita
While margaritas aren’t normally my go-to cocktail, my friend Krissie adores them. When we tried this gem from 1900 Mexican Grill, we were both surprised by how refreshing it was.
The Root Daiquiri
You wont find this in Charlotte, but it’s close. Sovereign Remedies in Asheville is home to this incredible drink. With fresh ingredients, it is damn tasty.
