All aboard! In celebration of the Cincinnati Streetcar Grand Opening, we’re offering a special throwback cocktail all weekend long. Drop by the Metropole bar and lounge on FRI 09.09.16 through SUN 09.11.16 to sip on the Streetcar ’89.
A riff on the Sidecar, a classic cocktail that originated in the early 1900’s, our version uses 21c favorite Copper & Kings Craft Distilled American Brandy and house-made orange bitters. The name is inspired by the year 1889 when the electric streetcar was first introduced in Cincinnati.
