The Seasonal Offering Includes Seven Crafted Cocktails With Flavor Profiles Ranging From Sweet and Tart to Smokey and Savory
HopScotch, Orange County’s premier destination for crafted cocktails, small-batch whiskey, and culinary American cuisine, is pleased to introduce its Summer Crafted Cocktail Menu, developed by Director of Libations, James Wood.
Scheduled to debut Friday, June 21 (Summer Solstice), guests are invited to partake in a selection of expertly handcrafted cocktails designed to please a wide variety of palates. Those who enjoy sweet, fruity flavors will be drawn to the Blackberry Smash, which features Right Gin, freshly-muddled blackberries, lemon juice, cinnamon syrup, and mint, while Brits Lemonade is perfect for those who appreciate tangy flavors, as this herbaceous cocktail features Pimms, a house-made rosemary lemonade, and prosecco.
The seasonal menu, which features a total of 7 signature drinks, also includes the Smoke and Mirrors, crafted with the Scotch drinker in mind. Featuring Dewars Blended Scotch, Kubler Absinthe, lemon juice, vanilla syrup, and “fairy mist,” the smoky cocktail is light and refreshing with strong hints of anise. The Peruvian, a savory and deviously tempting cocktail with a full piece of candied bacon garnish features Pisco Porton, Courvoisier, fresh squeezed lime juice, Thyme syrup, celery bitters, and bacon Ranch powder.
As with all HopScotch signature cocktails, each drink is meticulously handcrafted using premium spirits, fresh ingredients such as fruits and juices, and house-made fusions. For those who simply cannot wait to sample the new menu, HopScotch is inviting a limited number of guests to a tasting preview Wednesday, June 19 from 4:00p.m. to 7:00p.m. Each of the new drinks will be specially priced during the event. Tickets for the preview are free and may be reserved via www.hopscotchsummercocktailpreview.eventbrite.com . Each ticket admits two guests.
