Spirit Forward is a downtown Macon cocktail collaborative designed to highlight our talented bartenders/mixologists and promote locally distilled Georgia spirits! Each week, bartenders from participating bars, venues, and restaurants will be tasked with reimagining classic cocktails with an unexpected spirit. On Mondays, NewTown Macon will select and announce a cocktail for every participating venue to create. See the announced cocktail here. But here’s the catch – each venue will be assigned a spirit from a sponsoring distillery to use to create the featured cocktail of the week! This might mean a venue has to develop a classic Old Fashioned using gin, or a gimlet with bourbon. Each week will bring a variety of new twists to the drinks you know and love.
Each venue will only have 2 days to develop their cocktail. On Wednesday nights beginning July 19 through August 9, you’re invited to taste the concoctions and discover new favorites and flavor profiles.
Visit each participating venue over the course of the month, and you’ll be entered to win a $25 gift card from EACH participating business. A punch card to track your progress will be available on July 17. Email your completed card to email@example.com by August 11. The lucky winner will be announced on August 14!
Participating businesses are:
Churchill’s on Cherry
Kinjo Kitchen + Cocktails
Oliver’s Corner Bistro
