Saltwood Bourbon Red Promo Struts Bourbon Cocktails and Turkey Small Plates Throughout November
Bird’s the word on the tip of the tongue and top of the table during the Bourbon Red bar promotion at Saltwood Charcuterie & Bar in the Loews Atlanta Hotel. Bourbon Reds are a handsome heritage turkey breed first introduced in the Kentucky bourbon belt. Good name for the special month-long menu boasting three bourbon-based cocktails and a trio of turkey-touting small plates, all of which will ruffle “the usual” feathers. Gobble turkey sliders ($6) with boiled peanut mustard and pickles paired with the Not So Old Fashioned ($10) cocktail twirling Jim Beam, muddled cranberries, Angostura bitters and soda. Smoked turkey wings ($10) with Manhattan barbecue sauce fly with Sage Advice ($12) mixing Wild Turkey, sour mix and muddled sage, and a turkey pastrami board ($9) of grilled bread, pickles and whole grain mustard stretches out next to a Rosemary Sparkler ($11) of Jim Beam Rye, red wine and Chambord.
