Thursday Sips & Nibbles

I'm back again with a new edition of Sips & Nibbles, my regular column where I highlight some interesting, upcoming food and drink events. I hope everyone dines out safely and tips well.
Committee Ouzeri + Bar, one of my favorite restaurants, is celebrating their 6th Anniversary this month. Such delicious Greek cuisine, a killer Greek wine list, unique Greek spirits, and an inventive cocktail program. Their patio in the summer is usually jam-packed, with plenty of people enjoying this fine restaurant. 

To celebrate their anniversary, as well as the advent of summer, and the launch of the Summer in Greece cocktail series, Committee is hosting the Summer in Greece Patio Party this Sunday, June 27 from Noon-4PM. The Patio Party is open to the public, will have a cash bar, and the full menu is available. In addition, there will be complimentary passed meze, Greek music and more. 

Beverage Manager Lou Charbonneau and his team are taking the Committee cocktail experience to the next level. The Summer in Greece cocktail series showcases some of the lesser known Greek spirits such as retsina, ouzo, tsipouro, mastiha and Stray Dog WIld Gin, in four new cocktails from now until Labor Day. 

The fascinating Cocktails include:
--First Ever Ultra Crushable Retsina Cocktail (Retsina, Stray Dog Wild Gin, Mt. Olympus Flower Tea, Lime)
--Hermes Wallbangeropolis (Ouzo, Vyssino, Mango, Orange, Lime), a Harvey Wallbanger riff with vyssino sour cherry and mango)
--Tiki...Poso S'Agapo (Tsipouro, Metaxa, Baklava Orgeat, Pineapple, Success)
--Frozen Mastjito (A frozen Mastiha Mojito to embrace Greece, because everyone has done froze)

I'll be checking out those new cocktails this weekend.
