Well, I can officially knock cocktails in the “Music City” (Nashville, Tennessee) off the Lushworthy bucket list. Over the weekend, myself and a couple of blogger friends took part in our first ever #LushYumBeauty press trip. We sipped and noshed our way through both Chattanooga and Nashville, and had an amazing time while doing so.
I love a good Happy Hour turn-up, so I was excited to discover that The Sutler Saloon, one of the restaurants we visited while in Nashville, offered just that. All of the cocktails on their menu are half-off from 3 to 7 P.M., Monday through Friday.
A cocktail fav for me from The Sutler was “The Slingshot,” which is made using Gordon’s Gin, orange bitters, lemon, and sweet vermouth. I know that a lot of people tend to treat gin cocktails like a wicked step-kid because of past experiences. Trust me, a well-made gin cocktail will change your entire outlook on life. And “The Slingshot” has the ability to do just that. Taste-wise, it was like biting into a gin-infused orange. The orange flavor is heavily present thanks to the bitters, but there isn’t that tart ickyness you sometimes get from OJ. It. Is. Good!
