This quarter, I'm highlighting the cocktail bar, "Bitter & Twisted" in downtown Phoenix, Arizona.
Even if I didn’t live in Phoenix, I would be highlighting this bar. Owner, Ross Simon, creates fun and whimsical cocktails that could only live in a fairytale … part of the menu’s theme. Coming off of last year’s Fairytale Themed menu, this one takes the same concept, but it’s the “evil” version featuring villains in some of your favorite stories.
The menu actually reads like a fairytale book, with incredible illustrations and “sub-themes”, like a page of Negronis that feature several different Negronis with various infusions. (The coffee bean infused gin is one of my favorites.)
It’s adventurous, creative and a lot of fun. If you’re looking for some over the top “drinkspiration”, it’s worth checking out if you’re in and around the Southwest. And, if you're a collector of cocktail menus, this is a keeper. It's full of "Easter Eggs" with lots of fun hidden references.
Below are a few highlights of some of the cocktails and some pages from the book.
