They say variety is the spice of life, and with the infinite possibilities of cocktails available to you these days, it is easy to add that variety and get some of that spice! Gone are the days of ordering the same old drink time after time. It’s time to try something new. Something unique. Something refreshing. With some of the most talented mixologists in the Southeast here in Atlanta, you can sip some truly spectacular creations. Here are a few of our favorite specialty cocktails around Midtown Atlanta.

The Consulate

Grab your passport and get ready for a trip around the world at The Consulate. This globetrotting eatery offers handcrafted cocktails designed by award-winning mixologist Christine “Lady Zee” Zammit. The ingredients are handmade and the mix is just right. For Zammit, cocktails are two parts art, two parts chemistry, and a splash of passion. Try the Dragon Pear (Bombay East, Chinese 5 spiced Pear Shrub, Lemon, Creme de Noyeaux, Baked pear slice) from the Visa Cocktails list, or their take on the Old Fashioned, the Consulate Elixir (Four Roses Yellow Label Bourbon, Giffard Creme de Peche, Mint, Bitter Trio, Citrus Oils) from the Resident Cocktails list. You’ll feel well traveled after a trip to The Consulate.

Ecco Atlanta

Ecco brings the style of Old World Europe home to Midtown. The creative use of premium liquors and herbs, often taken from their own rooftop garden, lead to drinks you’ll go crazy for! Take for instance their aromatic Long Live The Queen (Bombay sapphire gin, elderflower syrup, lemon, peach bitters, mint), or the smoky and intense Invierno Rojo (la Montesa Rioja, Leopold Bros. cranberry liquor, Amaro, lime, allspice “smoke” )The drinks pair perfectly with their dynamic Italian menu for an ideal night out.

Bar Margot

Located inside the luxurious Four Seasons Hotel, this bar builds perfectly balanced cocktails the way Wes Anderson builds a perfectly balanced scene in a movie. In fact, Bar Margot has taken a lot of inspiration from Anderson. Their eclectic drink menu includes creations like “Mordecai’s Escape,” named for the Falcon in The Royal Tenenbaums, and the complex, Ketel One based “Moonrise Kingdom.” Sipping one of these concoctions is like spending time on a boat with Bill Murray or on a train with Jason Schwartzman.

The perfect cocktail can be the cornerstone of your night out. Try one of these alcoholic amalgamations and let us know what you think on Facebook or Instagram. And keep on following our blog here for more Midtown outings.
