Drink of the Week 8/16-8/22

This week, we honor a cocktail that tastes eerily similar to one of America’s most beloved chocolate bar. The Snickers Martini is a Country Club Tavern original, envisioned and created by resident bartender Michele Keith. When crafting this dessert martini, Michele mixes peanut butter sauce, vanilla vodka, Godiva chocolate liqueur, and a splash of Bailey’s. From there, she coats the rim of a CCT martini glass in chocolate sauce and then dips it in crushed peanuts for a nutty finish. She then expertly pours the sweet concoction into the garnished glass and the Snickers Martini is ready to be enjoyed.

As fellow bartender Kristin states, Michele is CCT’s “martini specialist”. A visit to this “down home”, neighborhood watering hole is not complete without a taste of this master’s martini creations. Give them a try Monday through Friday from 4:30 to 6:30 at CCT’s weekday Happy Hour for a $1 off their usual price. Or beat the weekend-ending blues with Michele and the CCT team on Sundays, when every hour is Happy Hour with $1 Coors Lights and $1 off drinks. Rather drink a brew? CCT features over 25 bottled beers and over 12 beers on tap. Stop in for a cold one on the way home from work or for a night out on the town. Giddy up!
