Cool new summer drinks, for less than a gallon of gas

Cool new summer drinks, for less than a gallon of gas

With hot summer days upon us, a few Alexandria watering holes are offering new beverages to their spirits menu to help guests keep their cool this summer. 

At Ted’s Montana Grill, for instance, starting this week guests can try Ted’s new Strawberry Margarita, Mountain Breeze, Firewater or Double Espresso Martini. 

  • Strawberry Margarita The refreshing classic. A blend of strawberry puree, sour mix, and two ounces of Jose Cuervo Especial Tequila and Cointreau.
  • Mountain Breeze The new Mountain Breeze, inspired by cool mountain living, has two ounces of Finlandia Grapefruit-fusion vodka mixed with freshly squeezed lime and orange juices and topped with a splash of cranberry juice. 
  • Firewater Strong and smooth, Firewater is two ounces of Woodford Reserve, the first and only bourbon to be named the “Official Bourbon of the Kentucky Derby.”  Order it neat or on the rocks with an 8-ounce bottle of Coca-Cola. 
  • Double Espresso Martini Craving an after-dinner espresso?  This new martini, features three ounces of Van Gogh Double Espresso Vodka, chilled and shaken to perfection.   

“These new signature drinks represent our focus on premium quality brands, the freshest ingredients and, sometimes, new twists on classic favorites,” says Randy McAdoo of Ted’s Montana Grill.
