Football Season Commands a Special Toast: Inspired Spirits by the Glass
Restaurant R’evolution is kicking off this football season by introducing fans to a refreshing new cocktail befitting the occasion.
Meet the “Saint”, an inspired blend of Belvedere vodka delicately balanced with lemongrass syrup, fresh lemon juice and Crème de Violet that is shaken not stirred over ice. The mixture is strained and poured into a chilled martini glass, finished with a few dashes of peach bitters and topped off with a lemon twist. Voila, spirit by the glass!
Restaurant R’evolution’s beverage director, Molly Wismeier, acknowledges that creating the “Saint” was truly a team effort. “This season’s cocktail is super refreshing and fun to drink but it’s a serious beverage that the connoisseur can appreciate,” explains Wismeier.
It’s a tradition at Restaurant R’evolution to unveil a new cocktail at the start of each football season to honor our New Orleans Saints with a toast to their success. Whether you’re cheering the team on at the game or joining friends at your favorite bar, a toast with the “Saint” at Restaurant R’evolution is a winner and promises to please.
