Philly Rolls, Tuesday ‘Tinis, and Thursday ‘Ritas: A Winning Combo at Hearth Pizza Tavern

After an amazing win for the Falcons Sunday, pizza and beer (two game day essentials) are on everyone’s mind. Hearth Pizza Tavern is certainly serving up scrumptious wood-fired, oven-baked pizzas, and dishing out additional lip-smacking delights. Those beloved Philly rolls are back on the Hearth Specials menu for $7. Picture center-cut sirloin steak, fontina and cheddar, caramelized onions and shiitake mushrooms hand-rolled into a light, flaky spring roll and joined by smoky, homemade ketchup, pepperoncini and pickles.

Even beer lovers can’t resist the cocktails at Hearth Pizza Tavern. Tuesday and Thursday night’s "Five for $5" martinis and margaritas prove fancy flavors and frugality can play on the same team. Tuesday nights, Absolut is the first ingredient in all five featured martinis:  Down and Dirty with its olive-y bite; Red Dragon doused with raspberry liqueur and cranberry juice; Sweet Cinnamon bearing Absolut Vanilla and RumChata; Just Peachy with its Peachtree schnapps; and Pucker Up, a kissable shake up adding fresh lemon juice, triple sec and simple syrup to Absolut Citron. Thursday 'ritas spin out tequila treats such as the SuperFruit blend of VeeV Acai Spirits, Tequila Blanco, fresh lime and agave; Grapevine twists tequila with triple sec, sour mix and grape juice; St. Rita canonizes Tequila Blanco with St. Germain and fresh lime; fresh lime and agave nectar sweeten TanteoJalapeño Tequila in the Spicy Jalapeño; and Tropical Fruit adds a dose of Cointreau, fresh lime and cranberry juices plus agave nectar to Tanteo Tropical Tequila. I sure hope these pass for fruit salad in a glass!
