GUARDIANS OF ROYALTY AT PEACOCK LOUNGE: You'll feel like a king or queen sipping this drink of vodka, bubbles and elderfl ower and raspberry liqueurs in the lushly appointed Peacock Lounge. Let's Toast IN SAVANNAH, SKILLED MIXOLOGISTS TRANSFORM SPIRITS INTO WORKS OF ART THIS DRINK PACKS A PUNCH CHATHAM ARTILLERY PUNCH has a bit of murky past (perhaps due to its formidable blend of spirits). Some say George Washington himself en- joyed a glass of Savannah's most famous punch as early as 1791, while others believe the recipe was more likely developed during the 1850s for a group of militiamen at the Chatham Artillery. What's indisputable, though, is that the punch is wickedly strong, blending a potent mixture of liquors such as brandy, rum and whiskey with sugar, tea and citrus fruits. Sweet, sour and decadently boozy, Chatham Artillery Punch toasts the importance of communal celebration. Order it at Savannah River House Seafood or P.S. Tavern for a true taste of our city's storied history. @ T H E F I T Z R O Y S A V V I S I T S A V A N N A H S A V A N N A H R I V E R H O U S E S E A F O O D Artillery Bar T H E T R A D E R O O M - A L I D A The Trade Room at The Alida Hotel The Fitzroy 34 |
