Found: Nan and Byron's
(1714 South Blvd.)
Pearl pomegranate vodka, POM pomegranate juice, simple syrup, muddled mint and fresh cucumber.
From food to artwork, the theme at Nan and Byron's, opening this week, is classic Americana. The rustic American eatery will boast a bountiful selection of craft cocktails, with the help of bourbon, moonshine and corn and rye whiskey made in the USA. With a unique selection of 15 cocktails, the Nightshade is just one of two martinis on the list that are vodka-based. That being said, the dark-hued martini is expected to be its most coveted sip. Though the pomegranate flavor may lead you to think of summer, this delectable cocktail transcends any season with an enticing, well-rounded flavor that you'll want to drink all year long.
"Everyone can, and will, drink it," says beverage manager Mark Childers. "The deep color and the large, fresh garnishes will be appealing to men and women alike. Ladies will love the fruit-forward freshness, and gentlemen will be pleased that it isn't nearly as sweet as they thought. It's definitely a cocktail for the co-eds."
Nan & Byron's, the sister restaurant of the popular 5Church, hosts its grand opening this weekend, Thursday, Nov. 7 through Saturday, Nov. 9. For reservations, visit www.opentable.com.
