Drink of the Week: Ginger Snap

In the spirit of the fall season our latest drink of the week is none other than “The Ginger Snap”, the brainchild of 5 West Pub bartender Tim Citrino. Tim describes it as merely one of the several “absolutely delicious” cocktails featured on 5 West’s new seasonal drink menu. He mixes Captain Morgan Spiced Rum, Canton Ginger Liqueur, Buttershots, a splash of half and half, and a sprinkle of Saigon cinnamon and shakes in order to craft this drink of the week. The Ginger Snap is then topped off with a generous dollop of whipped cream and a few more sprinkles of cinnamon to complete its warm, sweet goodness.

Get your taste of this cookie in a glass at 5 West’s daily Happy Hour from 3 to 6 p.m. daily and all day long on Sundays. Keep an eye out for the bar’s blackboard food and drink specials of the day, offering great deals on 5 West signature cocktails, domestic brews, and even their wood-fired pizzas. Or make 5 West your game day headquarters when your team is on the schedule for Sunday football. 5 West is an official member of DirecTV’s NFL Sunday Ticket, allowing them to show every out-of-market game, every Sunday on their six flat screen TVs. Even better, 5 West offers $2 Coors Light bottles, $2 Bud Light drafts, and half price wings every Sunbday from 1 to 8 p.m. so you can snack while the game unfolds. Go team!
