Green beer may be the go-to beverage for many St Patty’s Day revelers but we suggest you reach for a more refined beverage.
Situated six stories up on the top of The Durham Hotel, the Roof Bar mixes handmade cocktails that meld perfectly with small plates from James Beard award- winning chef Andrea Reusing of The Restaurant. Acclaimed Atlanta bartenders Greg Best and Paul Calvert developed a cocktail called The Green Room that plays on the botanical flavors of gin, dolin blanc and chartreuse with just a bit of sweetness.
“A riff on a gin-and-tonic, but more vegetal and herbaceous than its inspiration,” explains Greg and Paul.
“The Green Room is a very food-friendly cocktail. Named for a Durham bar and local landmark, The Green Room, where Durham Hotel owner Daniel Robinson once bartended.”
The chartreuse lends herbal noted to the cocktail and gives a kiss of green, making The Green Room a new celebratory fav.
