Classy, Classic Cocktails Come to KINGS: Introducing Our New Beverage Menu!
“Alcohol is the anesthesia by which we endure the operation of life.”-George Bernard Shaw
While we all crave a little numbness now and then, something that G.B.S. may have missed in his assessment of fine spirits is the true pleasure a well-made cocktail can bring. The combination of top-of-the-line ingredients, the melange of bitter and sweet, expertly mixed and served in a way that is both refined and playful… There’s nothing quite like it in the world.
Our guests have been saying for years how much they love our take on classic cocktails, as well as our inspired contemporary concoctions. We’ve heard you loud and clear: KINGS is now rolling out a simplified cocktail menu at all locations, focusing on top-shelf liquors and classic recipes, made with absolute care by our expert staff.
A Classical Education
When choosing the drinks that would make the cut on our new menu, we took a classic approach: We studied the most popular classic cocktails and brought them back to basics. Our recipes take inspiration from the historical roots of some of the most well-known and beloved cocktails, made fresh to order using premium ingredients.
Those with a classic palate will love our take on the time-honored Manhattan, Old Fashioned and Tom Collins. Those looking for something a little sweeter will enjoy fresh-made Traditional Daiquiris, Mai Tais, and Red or Strawberry Rose Sangria. Meanwhile, those looking for something a little off the beaten path may want to wet their whistle with a Negroni, Dirty Martini, Gimlet or French 75. No matter what you fancy, each cocktail is crafted to order, with recipes harkening back to their initial creation.
Trending Tonics, Contemporary Cocktails
That said, we haven’t turned our backs on more modern creations - in fact, we’ve taken inspiration from some of the latest trends to craft cocktails that you won't find anywhere else. Alongside our signature and playful Pop Rocks Martini, the rich and creamy Kings White Russian and the Kingstini you’ll find two new fun and funky drinks: the Cold Brew and Bull & Bear.
Taking a cue from the popularity of the smooth, drinkable cold brew coffee, the Cold Brew is a cocktail featuring Van Gogh Double Espresso Vodka, coffee liqueur, vanilla sweet cream and, yes, cold brew coffee, served either as a martini or on the rocks. The result is a cocktail that peps you up while it mellows you out, perfect for brunching, lunching or just a little pick-me-up when you need it.
The Bull & Bear takes its inspiration from the trend of boozy gummy bears currently dominating Pinterest boards and Instagram feeds all over the world. We mix raspberry vodka, peach liqueur, Red Bull and gummy bears to craft a very drinkable, fruity and refreshing beverage ideal for pre-gaming before you hit the lanes.
Of course, these are just some of the options that await you on our new beverage menu: Every KINGS features dozens of rotating draft lines complete with local microbrews and national favorites if you’re looking for something a little lighter but no less flavorful.
