Toast of the Town

These summer selections are light in body but not on flavor!

Emmolo No. 2 Sparkling Wine

Emmolo No. 2 Sparkling Wine

Hailing from costal California, Emmolo No. 2 is a chardonnay and pinot noir blend that offers wine lovers a delicately balanced beverage option. A long-aging period gives this wine a distinctive creaminess that is brought to life with soft bubbles.

Fleurs de Prairie Rose 2018

Fleurs de Prairie Rose 2018

Pale pink in color, Fleurs de Prairie delivers the best the season has to offer with hints of strawberry, rose petals, and herbs. With a bright and refreshing acidity, this wine is dry and crisp and blends over five different grape varieties for a truly unique taste.

Ketel One Botanical

Ketel One Botanical

With combinations such as Peach & Orange Blossom, Cucumber & Mint, and Grapefruit & Rose, Ketel One’s botanical vodkas make for a perfect summer drink. Natural fruit flavors come out in full force, and when paired with sparkling water, they provide a delicious spin on the classic vodka soda. 

Gate 11 Dry Gin

Gate 11 Dry Gin

Distilled right here in the Scenic City, Gate 11’s dry gin is a must-have for a hot day. Infused anywhere from 12 to 24 hours, this neutral spirit packs a punch when it comes to capturing botanical essences. Boasting a mixture of juniper berries, orris root, and irises, this spirit staple comes with a fruity finesse. CS
