Since it’s summertime the libations that people gravitate toward are cold and often fruity, reminding them of a tropical getaway. Do you want to get a generic drink made with a premade mix? Nope, you don’t. You want to go get something special. Head over to Kelsey’s Steak House and get one of their signature summer cocktails.
Here are four drinks that Mary Moncada, Bar Manager at Kelsey’s Steak House, will whip up for you.
Watermelon Martini – using fresh watermelon juice and Smirnoff Sour Watermelon Vodka, you can sip this refreshing concoction on a hot summer day. It even comes with a big ol’ wedge of watermelon on the glass so you have no doubt of what you are drinking.
Traffic Light Martini – this is one of their most popular cocktails. The bottom layer Midori with its recognizable green color. The middle layer is a mixture of Peachtree Schnapps, Malibu Rum, and orange juice; and the top layer is Smirnoff vodka and cranberry juice.
Strawberry Peach Daiquiri – this lovely drink blends the flavors of peaches and strawberries with Bacardi. The peach flavor fits nicely with the strawberries and if you are the type to eat with your eyes first, this is a very pretty drink.
Lime Margarita – On the rocks, please. Mary rimmed the glass with sugar and mixed this concoction with premium tequila and Cointreau. Margaritas can have a bit of a bite to them, so Mary fixes that by cutting it a bit of orange juice. It’s just perfect.
And these are just a few of many drinks that you will find at Kelsey’s. Throughout the year the drinks change based on the seasons and changing ingredients. Mary and the rest of the bartenders are always looking to try new things, and she loves to make new things for her guests.
“When someone comes in and doesn’t know what they want, I’ll create something new for them,” Mary said. “Often they love the drinks that we make for them so much that they get it again and again when they come back to dine with us.”
Kelsey’s also serves great wines, reds and whites, and domestic, import, and craft beers for those who aren’t into the cocktail scene.
So the next time you think about going out on a Friday with your girlfriends, on a date, or a relaxing dinner any day of the week, think about going to Kelsey’s where you can get a meal like no other, and a drink like no other.
