Craving a drink or two? In honor of National Cocktail Day on March 24, we’re sharing three ways to get your sip on at Mountain Shadows this year.
New Cocktail Menu
Grand Canyon National Park recently celebrated its centennial birthday February 26 and in honor of it, Hearth ’61 is pouring up a special cocktail all year long. The Bold Botanist is named after Joseph Christmas Ives, a U.S. soldier, botanist and explorer, who was the first American to set out into the Grand Canyon. The cocktail features Tanqueray shaken with fresh lime juice, simple syrup, egg white and mint, then topped with angostura bitters. The cocktail has notes of juniper, a plant found in abundance in the canyon. In addition to The Bold Botanist, the bar has unveiled a new menu of signature cocktails, along with the return of the popular Paradise Lost cocktail.
