I lived in Northern Virginia until 2010. My dad lives there, and my best friend, so even through college and now when I’m a Georgia resident, I don’t consider myself a tourist. This past weekend, my aforementioned best friend celebrated her 30th birthday and I got to ride shotgun. Here are the some of the highlights:
On Saturday, we went with some friends to a special Proof Syrup tasting at The Pinewood in Decatur, GA. We’ve been huge fans of this restaurant since they opened 3 years ago. At it’s heart, it’s a whiskey bar that serves awesome southern food. They have House Old-Fashioneds on draft and some of the most passionate bartenders and mixologists around.
From their catering experience, they decided to make their own batches of cocktail syrups to save time. Now, Proof Syrups is available to buy in stores in a variety of flavors. For this ScoutMob cocktail tasting, we had three old-fashioneds with each flavor of syrup, which combines the simple syrup, bitters and citrus. Just add alcohol, and your cocktail is complete.
