I am very excited to post this press release from District American Kitchen and Wine Bar in Phoenix, Arizona. A few months back I got to meet Matt and have a few of his drinks. They were fantastic and he was nice and I could tell loving mixing up awesome drinks. Hopefully you will get a chance to check it out either Thursday or sometime soon.
DISTRICT UNVIELS NEW SUMMER BAR MENU WITH GET FROZEN COCKTAIL EVENT
Mixologist Matt Tobey offers guests a cooling summer cocktail featuring liquid nitrogen
On Thursday, July 31 District American Kitchen and Wine Bar at Sheraton Phoenix
Downtown Hotel will host Get Frozen, a happy hour event inviting cocktail enthusiasts
to head downtown and cool off while enjoying Mixologist Matt Tobey’s new summer
cocktail menu. Guests will receive a sample of one of his latest creations, complimentary
appetizer, and listen to the smooth tunes provided by DJ Amber Giles.
Matt will feature a new drink called Peaches for Two, a peach and watermelon Bellini
made with Gloria Ferrer sparkling wine that is frozen with the help of liquid nitrogen,
which gives this drink a cool and smooth texture. Guests can sample the drink as they
watch Matt concoct this frozen delight through the cool smoky haze of the liquid nitrogen.
Guests are invited to explore the new cocktail menu for delicious drinks like Dram the
Gin featuring house made all spice dram, fresh pear and rosemary; Arizona Gold, a
tequila shandy with Papago Brewery Orange Blossom Ale and Grand Marnier; and the
Sonoran Sling- a spin on the classic cocktail with Arizona Distilling Company’s Desert
Dry Gin, prickly Luxardo syrup, and cherry brandy. Happy hour menu items and drinks
will also be available for purchase.
Complimentary three-hour self-parking validation will be available.
Event cost is $10 upon entry. Please confirm attendance here: http://on.fb.me/1mkxXHW
