10 FOR $10 COCKTAILS
Gin, lemon juice, simple syrup and prosecco come together in a fresh, bubbly, citrus salute to this cross-town connector.
This lemony cocktail (with just a hint of sour) honors one of Bellevue’s first homesteaders. William Meydenbauer was a baker, so no doubt he would approve of our frothy whipped egg whites!
Named to honor Mercer Island resident and hometown hero Paul Allen, this refresher combines gin, lime juice, maraschino liqueur and Crème de Violette. Cheers and thank you Paul!
For Whom the Bridge Tolls
Worth every penny during rush hour – or any time! This classic Old Fashioned features bourbon, brandied cherry, orange slice, simple syrup, and bitters all muddled together. Just like everyone driving on 520!
Take Me to Snowflake Lane
It’s almost time for sparkles and snowflakes on Bellevue Way. Honoring one of Bellevue’s most celebrated events, this pretty nod to a Lemon Drop includes vodka, Triple Sec, lemon juice with a snowy sugared rim.
Bellevue’s Botanical Garden is a hidden gem and this colorful cocktail captures its blossoms and blooms. Sweet and sour deliciously combine thanks to the botanical notes in Empress gin, lime juice, and simple syrup.
Clyde Hill Cosmo
It’s a classic for a reason. Stylish, colorful and a bit sassy. Mixed berry infused vodka, lime juice, Triple Sec, cranberry juice.
You will float away once you taste this bubbly and rich concoction. Hennessey VS cognac gets a lift from Chambord, prosecco and a lemon twist.
As refreshing as a dip off a lakefront dock! Vodka, ginger beer, lime juice, and bitters combine for sweet, spicy perfection.
We raise a glass to Bellevue’s visionary, Kemper Freeman. It is a smart and forward thinking refresher featuring pomegranate puree, lime juice, mint, soda and a bit of sweet to round it out. (non-alcoholic)
