There’s no better time to unwind than while on vacation! Sometimes, all you need is a cold drink and your closest friends and family to have a great time! Here at The Greenbrier Restaurant, we specialize in serving up delicious craft cocktails with a drink menu that features a little something for everyone! Walkers’ Union, our bar at The Greenbrier, is where liquor and art meet. Using the finest alcohol and fresh, house-made ingredients, we craft some of the most delicious cocktails you’ll ever have! Here are 6 must-try cocktails at our Gatlinburg restaurant:
You’ve never had an Old Fashioned quite like this one before! Dylan is our signature Old Fashioned, made with Bob Dylan’s Heaven’s Door Bourbon, Madagascar vanilla bean simple syrup and bitters! This delicious drink is served in a pecan smoke-washed snifter over black cherry ice spheres and finally garnished with Filthy Black Cherries.
Sure, prohibition ended decades ago, but our love for gin never has! Our Volstead cocktail combines McQueen and the Violent Fog Gin served with muddled strawberries and cucumber, fresh squeezed lemon juice and ruby red grapefruit juice! The drink is then topped with our floral St. Germain Elderflower foam to make a gin cocktail unlike any you’ve had before!
Rye whiskey drinkers unite! Crockett is our layered masterpiece that combines High West Double Rye, lemon juice, simple syrup and orange marmalade! This delicious drink at our Gatlinburg restaurant is topped with Crockett foam, made with orange juice, maple syrup and egg whites, making it both sweet and strong! This drink is garnished with a smoking sprig of fresh rosemary.
4. Hemingway Daiquiri
Our Hemingway Daiquiri is the perfect drink for summer in the Smoky Mountains! A nod to the original Papa Doble, the Hemingway Daiquiri is hand-shaken with Blue Chair Bay Rum, Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur, lime juice, ruby red grapefruit juice and simple syrup! This drink is garnished with a dehydrated citrus wheel.
This drink packs a punch and is a refreshing favorite of our patrons! A kick from muddled jalapeños is combined with Tres Agaves Añejo tequila, Cointreau and lime juice! Our house-made sour mix is then poured over top and this delicious drink is garnished with sea salt and a jalapeño.
A martini isn’t the first drink you think of when you imagine the Smoky Mountains, yet this is to die for! Named after the spirit of Greenbrier, our Lydia cocktail blends Wheatley Vodka with freshly squeezed lemon juice and house-made lavender simple syrup! We top it off with a lavender-infused sugar rim and a lemon wheel soaked in Creme de Violette for garnish!
