The Topaz Hotel stands where Theodore Roosevelt lived for a short time while president, before officially moving into The White House. Sometimes the site is still referred to as the “Little White House.”
On the menu is a cocktail named for each Republican candidate:
Join Rick’s Tea Party ($9) with an herb-scented mix of green tea-infused Absolut vodka, Benedictine liqueur, lemon juice and simple syrup. A few more drops of juice and it turns into Rick’s Lemon Party.
The Romney Float requires little funding at just $5, for Old Dominion root beer blended with whipped heavy cream and a house-made “Salt Lake” caramel drizzle. Earmark an extra $6 for a shot of Root organic liqueur.
Newt ain’t a Georgia peach, but the Gin-grich and Tonic ($9) is. A twist on the old classic, Bluecoat gin and Fentimans tonic are topped off with a peach liqueur float. It might be as close as he gets to winning The Peach State.
Ron’s PBR ($5) is simply a can of PBR. Joint not included.
