Peanut Butter Coke Float $10.50
A unique and indulgent treat, the Peanut Butter Coke Float is a playful concoction that takes the traditional Coke float to a new level. This dessert-like drink usually features vanilla ice cream and peanut butter combined with the fizzy goodness of Coca-Cola. It is an exquisite fusion of sweet and savory tastes that will please any sweet desire.
Pop-A-Razzi Punch $9.50
The Pop-A-Razzi Punch is a vibrant and colorful drink about fun and refreshment. It’s a fruity medley that typically includes a blend of various fruit juices like orange, pineapple, cranberry, and sometimes lemon or lime. Depending on the recipe, it might be spiked with rum or vodka, but its non-alcoholic version is just as enjoyable.
Tropic Storm $10.50
As the name suggests, the Tropic Storm is a powerful and bold cocktail designed to evoke the essence of a tropical thunderstorm. This electrifying drink often contains a mix of dark and light rum combined with passion fruit and lime juices. A touch of grenadine might be added to enhance its visual appeal with a vivid red hue.
Henne Berry Bramble $11.50
The Henne Berry Bramble is a sophisticated and elegant cocktail showcasing berries’ delicate flavors. This drink usually includes gin as the base spirit, mixed with blackberry liqueur, fresh lemon juice, and simple syrup. Served over crushed ice and garnished with fresh berries and a lemon slice, it’s a delightful balance of sweet and tart.
Luxury Margarita $12.50
The Luxury Margarita is a premium version of the classic Mexican cocktail. Crafted with top-shelf tequila, such as reposado or añejo, it boasts a smooth and refined taste. The tequila is mixed with fresh lime juice and a high-quality orange liqueur, such as Cointreau or Grand Marnier. It’s usually served over ice in a salt-rimmed glass, giving the beverage a well-balanced, refined, and slightly ethereal appearance.
Frozen Margaritas $10.50
An appealing choice for scorching summer days or whenever you’re in the mood for a cool, icy treat. The Frozen Margarita takes the traditional margarita ingredients – tequila, lime juice, and orange liqueur – and blends them with ice to create a slushy, tangy-sweet beverage. It’s a delightful way to enjoy the classic margarita with a frosty twist.
Spicy Rock Margarita $11.50
For those who appreciate a bit of heat in their drinks, the Spicy Rock Margarita offers a thrilling combination of flavors. It typically features tequila, fresh lime juice, and orange liqueur, just like a classic margarita. However, adding spicy elements like jalapeño slices or spicy syrup adds a twist. The refreshing citrus flavors balance the heat, creating a bold and stimulating experience.
Ginger Lemonade $9.50
A non-alcoholic option, Ginger Lemonade is a zesty and refreshing drink that combines fresh lemonade’s tangy taste with ginger’s spiciness. It has the ideal balance of sweetness and tartness, as well as a light gingery warmth. This beverage is usually served over ice and garnished with a lemon slice or ginger slice for added visual appeal.
Sour Crystal Apple $10.50
The Sour Crystal Apple is an irresistible cocktail that melds the crispness of green apples with the zing of sour mix. This drink often contains vodka or apple-flavored liqueur as the base spirit, combined with the tartness of sour mix or freshly squeezed lime juice. The result is a lip-smacking concoction with a vibrant green hue, served over ice and sometimes garnished with apple slices.
Red Sangria $11.50
Red Sangria is a refreshing and fruity wine-based cocktail from Spain, known for its vibrant crimson hue and delightful flavors. The primary ingredient in Red Sangria is red wine, typically a medium to full-bodied variety such as Tempranillo, Merlot, or Cabernet Sauvignon. A medley of sliced fresh fruits like oranges, apples, and berries is added to this base, infusing the drink with natural sweetness and aromatic qualities.
White Sangria $10.50
White Sangria shares many similarities with its red counterpart but showcases a lighter and more delicate profile. As the name suggests, the primary difference lies in using white wine instead of red. Common white wine choices include Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, or Chardonnay.
The rest of the recipe closely mirrors Red Sangria’s, with slices of fresh fruits such as peaches, green apples, and citrus infusing the drink with their light, fruity notes. White Sangria is typically served chilled over ice, and, similar to Red Sangria, it can be topped with soda or sparkling water for a bit of enthusiasm.
