Cocktail Corner: The Fitzroy in Savannah, GA

Last week, my friends at The Fitzroy invited me and influencer bud, Shannon Mercier to try out the new cocktail menu.  I've been dying to get to The Fitzroy ever since I found them on Instagram and fell in love with the beautiful photos of their gorgeous interior.

The new drink menu is loaded with "cocktails for the culture" and has offerings like, "The Princess & The Frog", "Death by Strawberries" & Gins N' Roses" among others.  We got a chance to taste the entire menu- PLUS a few recommendations from Bad Ass Lady Bartender for the night, Rachel!  We even got to order from the menu and try the dessert offerings.

I'm so happy to share this new menu with you guys!  It's so exciting to experience new & old spirits in fresh, innovative ways! 
Here's a photo of each cocktail that I tried and my thoughts about it:

THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG - Made with gin, fresh cucumber, Lemon & garnished on top with Pink Peppercorn
This was  tasty little drink and it is a beautiful presentation.  The cucumber flavor gives it a fresh and pleasant plant-like taste that definitely reminded me of the bayou.  It's not super sweet, just very refreshing.  I'm enjoying lots of new cocktails that are using cucumber now for flavor and this one was a great one.

DEATH BY STRAWBERRIES - Made with vodka, Cocci Rosa, Ginger, Meyer Lemon, Strawberry & Mint
This one was my favorite.  Imagine a strawberry flavored moscow mule.  It's sweet, very light and loaded with fresh strawberry flavor.  The ginger gives it a slight zing and the mint made it very refreshing.

NAKED & FAMOUS - Single Village Mezcal, Yellow Chartreuse, Citrus Flavor, Aperol
This one was a close second.  The smokey and slightly salty taste of the mezcal was perfect against the citrus flavor.  It's a beautiful drink served in a Nick & Nora glass.

THE DUCHESS OF SUSSEX - Bourbon, Ginger Liqueur, Citrus, Blackberries
Named for Meghan Markle and just a beautiful!  Shannon ordered this one and I sipped off of hers.  LOL  It's very light with strong blackberry flavor.

DON  DRAPER - Single Malt Scotch, Yellow Chartreuse, Amaro Ciociaro
This one was soooooo good.  It's a sweet scotch with spicy chartreuse.  It's a "sipper"!

GINS N' ROSES - House-Infused Basil Gin, Demerara Syrup, Rose
This was Shannon’s favorite.  She’s a gin girl and I am not.  It was a beautiful drink but it was a bit too fragrant for me.  I enjoy aromatic drinks but I have to be careful because some florals trigger my migraines.  As far as the taste, it was sweet and the basil infusion made i very interesting.  The basil was Shannon’s favorite part.

MIAMI STATE OF MIND - Tequila Plata, Ginseng, Jalapeno Syrup, Ginger
I’ve been wanting to try a jalapeno drink for some time and this was my opportunity.  This drink hit sweet & tart like a regular margarita and then the heat came.  Woooooooooo…  The taste was excellent but if you’re not into spicy things, then this one isn’t for you.  Lol  But, if you like multiple contrasts between flavors then I’d give it a try.  


Of course, some of these I enjoyed more than others, but I didn't taste a single one that I didn't like.  LOL  As I mentioned above, my favorites were the Death By Strawberries and the Naked & Famous.  I’m a sucker for the sweet and fruity drinks!  Lol I hope that you enjoyed the pics of my visit.  You can catch me on Instagram for vids of Rachel in action and for more pics of all the fun!

Special thanks to The Fitzroy in Savannah, GA for inviting us to try out the new cocktail menu!  The bar/restaurant is definitely worth a trip downtown for and bonus points from being right across the street from a parking garage.  That’s a biggggggggg PLUS for spots downtown because parking is a BEAST!  I hope you’ll give them a visit for great drinks, delicious food and a beautiful atmosphere!

Until Next Time...
