We have been fortunate enough to have followed Ray Nisi and his Double Helix brand since its inception at the Palazzo Resort in Las Vegas and is a true example of entrepreneurial spirit and hard work.
It’s still cold outside and we all could use a little warming up. A fantastic way to get warm and cozy is to head over to Double Helix Wine & Whiskey Lounge at Town Square to taste the new cocktails made exclusively for the holidays and healthy new menu items just in time to help with those New Year's resolutions.
We always enjoy sitting at the outside fire pits on the patio, people watch and enjoy some very tasty cocktails. This time of year we came to the right place as Double Helix Wine & Whiskey Lounge has some seasonal libations that are sure to tantalize your palate. Looking over the list, a warm Hot Toddy made with in-house barrel-aged whiskey and blended with toddy mix, hot water, agave and freshly squeezed lemons is a great choice.
An Irish Coffee always hits the spot. This classic treat in a glass combines Jameson Irish Whiskey, brown sugar simple syrup and hot coffee topped with rich sweet whipped cream. You can’t get more classic than a Manhattan so why not try the Ladies of Bourbon. This dessert variation on the Manhattan is a blend of Basil Hayden's, white crème de cocoa and amaretto chilled in a cool cocktail glass and then topped with a Luxardo cherry to add the finishing touch.
Double Helix Wine & Whiskey has assembled a knowledgeable staff and are very eager to assist in pairing a signature cocktail with some of their new menu items.
Try the Autumn Breeze, a spicier mix of rye, lemon juice, blackberry syrup and a touch of Benedectine with the “Double Triple,a taste of three cheeses and three charcuterie selections. Other new menu items include Seared yellowfin tuna, with marinated English cucumber, garlic aioli, jalapeno and unagui sauce on toasted lavash or enjoy Porcini crusted salmon, served with sun dried tomato garbanzo stew and spinach or Honey roasted butternut squash, served with baby spinach.
For those wannabe mixologists , Double Helix Wine & Whisky Lounge is starting a new series teaching how to make cocktails that will be held once a month at the Town Square location. Each one will have a theme and the first one on Jan. 15 is all about classic cocktails with the Manhattan and the Old Fashioned then the second one on Feb. 12 will feature a White Chocolate Martini and Lemon Drop Martini to represent the sweet and sour sides of love. We will be honing our bar skills starting in January, will you?
