New Cocktail Menu at Christopher’s & Crush Lounge
There are few things in life that make me happier than a great cocktail with all the appetizers that can be fit on a table. When both components are perfectly executed the sheer delight and enjoyment washed over me like a wave of rainbows. I believe that the new cocktail menu collaboration between Chef Christopher Gross and master mixologist Travis Nass will be nothing but wave after wave of rainbows.
There is no one in the Valley that is creating French cuisine in quite how Chef Christopher does and Travis Nass is one of my favorite mixologists, so imagine my delight when I found out about the new cocktail menu at Christopher’s & Crush Lounge. Travis Nass, if you’re unfamiliar, is the current “Spirit Master” of CaskWerks Distilling Co. and the winner of the 2016 Beverage Master award handed out by the Arizona Culinary Hall of Fame.
Nass crafted the new cocktail menu and used local liquor products along with house-made bitters, tinctures, and syrups that result in one-of-a-kind concoctions available only at Christopher’s. The cocktails will run $13 a piece and can be ordered during dinner or happy hour, which runs from 3pm until 6pm daily. Don’t forget to check out their monthly wine dinners, which are always an epic event.
