Signature

Aperitif • Sweet
Shandy Americano

This refreshing beer-based cocktail marries a Bourbon Street staple (the Hurricane) with bartender Damon Boelte’s refreshing Americano Perfecto, a mix of Campari, Dolin Rouge, Carpano Antica and pilsner. We swapped out Boelte’s red vermouths for a rosé-based vermouth, and instead of using passion fruit as is traditional in a Hurricane, we opted for a salted guava syrup, which works wonders with the vermouth. This drink will wash over you like a salty-bittersweet wave, wreaking delicious havoc upon the shores of your palate.
