Pomtinis, Old Fashioned's and Gibsons, Oh my!
We got the chance to try out the cocktails and cuisine our first official restaurant placement this week! Only weeks ago, Downers Grove acquired a new eatery in the form of The Carnivore and The Queen, a speakeasy style supper club featuring a slew of modern craft cocktails with all the allure and ambiance of a prohibition age hideaway.
Upon entry, one notices the the bold, opulent accents of the guilded age: dark blue-gray walls with shocks of vintage-style gold fixtures, cozy corners booths next to a fireplace, a cured leg of something resembling prosciutto up atop the bar.... but most eye catching of all, their collection of all local spirits sitting proudly behind the counter! Determined to support local businesses, both their menu and cocktails feature local spirits and ingredients.
The menu includes some A La Carte options as well as a four course meal option with the likes of Ceviche, Steak, and Key lime pie to boot.
To make a copy cat pomtini:
- 1.5 oz Skeptic Vodka
