Summer Sips

Let’s be real, the second most popular hobby in 2020 (behind Minecraft) was booze.

Our cocktail craftsman Craig Richards (official Beverage R&D Specialist here at D&B) used the last year to craft drinks you will crave even after you leave the neon lights of the midway. 

We are kicking off the Summer with FOUR NEW DRINKS (and one fan favorite) on our menu and  when we say we have something for everybody, we mean EVERYBODYYY.

 

Our self-proclaimed “Beverage Boss” was formerly a D&B bartender 8 years ago – and worked his way to bringing his skills and vision to all! Not just a booze enthusiast, he mastered the science of cocktail making.

After joining the culinary team 2018, he had a vision: handcrafted cocktails made with fresh ingredients and never with any premade, from-a-can mixers.

His other mission: get people to appreciate gin.

(I know… we’ll get there. Keep reading.)

Get ready to salivate!

Tequila

Can’t you just hear the neighborhood ice cream truck? Or did I just have too many of these?? [internal dialog: they said yes.]

The Bomb Pop ‘Rita is a classic margarita crafted with our special mix (made in-house with 100% natural lime juice!), Sauza Hacienda Silver Tequila, DeKuyper Triple Sec and served with a  Bomb Pop for perfection!

Gin

Craig is huge a fan of gin and is aware most people are not. For this concept, his goal was to change everyone’s mind. And the mad man did it. 

I am personally not a fan of gin —always switch it out with tequila (jot that down and you’re welcome.)

But that Elderflower Tonic   On point. I recommend starting with this one regardless if you are or are not a gin drinker!

Ingredients: Hendrick’s Gin, Q Elderflower Tonic, fresh rosemary

It’s F’n good: fresh, fizzy, and a fast fan favorite.

Amaretto

Another favorite of ours is the new Blackberry Sour. Just so refreshing, I have no other words …but “blackberries!” (which I yelled out loud before and after trying.)

What’s in it? Disaronno, house-made sweet ‘n’ sour, and fresh blackberries  

Cognac

We also brought back a classic: Henny’s Strawberry Nirvana, because you shouldn’t mess with perfection.

What’s it got? Hennessy V.S Cognac, X -Rated Fusion Liqueur, strawberry and mango purees, and house-made sweet ‘n’ sour. Because we know you’re ready for Henny-thing outside your house this year.

Beer

Yessir. We also got crafty with our beer too! D&B added Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy because it just screams summer!

Not just by name: It’s part beer, part lemonade. Come on!

It also just fits well with the whole Summer of DING DING DING thing we’re doing over here.

In conclusion, Dave & Buster’s listened, heard and adjusted to all our needs. We have drinks  that’ll have you feeling like a winner, before and after playing our new arcade games!

You don’t have to continue hosting virtual happy hours, Carol! 

Dave & Buster’s is also set up with tons of massive HDTVs! Over 50 of our locations even have a WOW Wall with over 40-ft of LED TV… the ultimate sports-viewing experience! Whether you wanna catch a game or just slowly work your way back into society by watching our TVs instead of yours at home. And yes… we have Wifi! (…if you wanna pretend to text while checking out Dave & Buster’s Instagram )

Let’s all get back out and work on our social skills by watching sports, talking in person, and drinking together!
