Alley Cat Lounge Savannah Mexican Firing Squad

MEXICAN FIRING SQUAD - ALLEY CAT LOUNGE

Details: Blanco Tequila, St. George Chili Vodka, Lime Juice, Grenadine, Angostura Bitters, Hell Fire Bitters

If you like spicy margaritas, this will be right up your alley (pun intended). This cocktail is now in my top three of best drinks I’ve ever had, and the bartender was kind enough to write out the recipe for me because I loved it THAT much (and don’t live anywhere near Savannah). This spot has an extensive cocktail list that is creatively housed in their quarterly newspaper, so you’ll find something to excite your taste buds no matter what type of liquor you prefer!

Savannah PBR

PABST BLUE RIBBON (PBR) - ZUNZI’S

Details: Barley, Hops, Corn, Water, and Yeast

Okay, so maybe this isn’t super unique to Zunzi’s, but what’s better than one of their famous sandwiches (their sauces are seriously amazing!) and a cold beer that you can take to-go? In Savannah, you’re allowed to walk around the downtown with your alcohol in an approved container, so you might as well take advantage! Cheers!

Artillery Savannah Old Fashioned

OLD FASHIONED - ARTILLERY

Details: Rittenhouse Rye, Sugar, Angostura Bitters, and Lemon Peel

If you enjoy a classy cocktail experience, this spot (and this Old Fashioned) is for you! Every detail at Artillery has been perfected, and you’ll enjoy an intimate evening with your guest(s) by utilizing their private call button at each table. Enjoy a bottle, order it neat, or explore one of their amazing classic or contemporary cocktails.

The Vault Savannah Old Fashioned

100 GRAND OLD FASHIONED - THE VAULT KITCHEN + BAR

Details: 100 Grand Elijah Craig Bourbon, Vanilla Cane Sugar, Nocino Walnut Liqueur, and Bitters

Mix up your bourbon routine with this unique take on the classic Old Fashioned! The creamy hints of vanilla and walnut give it sort of a maple flavor that pairs surprisingly well with the Asian-inspired dishes in this renovated bank space.

Atlantic Savannah Century Cocktail

CENTURY - ATLANTIC

Details: Bourbon, Fig, Lemon, and Mint

This refreshing whiskey cocktail is served in an old neighborhood filing station that is now Atlantic. This light, bright, and crisp eatery has both indoor and outdoor seating options with great wine and beer options, also. Be sure to check out the Timbre Pinot Noir if you are a wine lover!

Cheers, and enjoy!
