Drink of the Week: Park Prime Steakhouse’s Guns and Rosemary


Out of the gates it drinks like welcome to the jungle just started playing on your taste buds. But, if you have a little patience, all of those flavors start to marry together quite nicely. The whiskey flavor is there, but it is toned down so well by the lemon, ginger, and rosemary, that you do not get any harshness from the spirit at all – just flavor. The finish is paradise city – super smooth and refreshing – making this a great cocktail to enjoy in the dog days of summer.

This drink is actually an iteration of a previous cocktail that substituted ginger beer for the ginger in the simple syrup. If you tried that version before, don’t cry because it’s no longer available, this version is much deeper in flavor. The carbonation doesn’t get in the way of the ginger flavor. It lets it sink more into the backdrop, which allows for the rest of the ingredients to hold hands a little easier.

Being a whiskey lover, this drink easily debuts high on the charts for me. If it wasn’t for my inner civil war with a few longtime favorites, it might even hit the top 10. Highly recommend.

If you were keeping track of the music references, did you find all six?
