Mixology Monday may be my favorite Hampton Roads happy hour. It’s an indecisive and adventurous craft cocktail lover’s dream. Each Monday evening, the bartender concocts two new cocktails that are not available on the every day menu and patrons in the bar area can enjoy both for $10 total.
Matt, the usual Monday Mixologist, is charismatic and passionate about his creations, which makes the experience all the more fun. From the presentation to naming the drinks, he puts thought into every detail.
Sometimes you can get a peek of the drinks of the day on Fin’s Facebook page or Matt’s Instagram, but more often than not you’ll have to go and find out yourself. Here’s an example of a Mixology Monday I recently partook in:
Drink 1: “Blind Tiger”
Alvear Sherry, Cynar 70, Hazelnut, Black Walnut, Brut Sparkling, Orange Oil
Drink 2: “Rest your Chest”
Brugal Extra Dry Rum, Fresh Watermelon, Lime, Chamomile Rosemary Runny Honey, Kaffir Lime Tincture, Soda
So go play some cocktail roulette! You won’t be disappointed. The drinks are always creative and always delicious.
