We've been to the restaurant for dinner and brunch previously, but were interested in their bar specials. Specifically, they have a 2 for 1 happy hour that applies to draft beers, house wines, and a specialty cocktail of the day. We actually came in thinking that 2 for 1 applied to ALL cocktails and were momentarily disappointed to learn that our little date night would be full price! Nonetheless, we both had a great time, enjoyed a really cozy ambiance, and delicious drinks.
Some quick back story: I won't get into the traumatic details but let's just say that from Labor Day 2006 through the very recent future, I have not touched gin. Eight years on and living in a mixology-happy city, I've decided to give gin a chance. I figured I could ease myself back into it by trying a multi-ingredient cocktail that includes gin. Which brings us to The Pitch & Fork happy hour.
J ordered a martini and I ordered The Royal Pitch. The ingredients listed are: Farmers Organic Gin, Goji Liquor, Lemon Juice & Champagne. It was DELICIOUS. The lemon was refreshing, the goji was fruity but not overly sweet, the champagne kept it light, but the whole thing certainly packed a punch with the gin. I really enjoyed it!
Three cheers to a nice, relaxing weekend with your cocktail of choice!
