The Bar Within Holiday Bar Gets A Twist In Orange County, CA
Of course, a bar named Holiday would have drinks for this part of the year.
Except, as seems to be with nearly everything at this creative concept in Costa Mesa, CA, it comes with a twist.
The new cocktails have been created for the Red Room, the “bar within the bar” at Holiday. Red Room is a lounge inside the speakeasy-style bar with live music “where every night is a Holiday,” as proclaimed in the bar’s tagline.
The new drinks include the Chili Chaplin with St. George Green Chili Vodka, fresh lime, muddled cucumbers and jalapenos, topped with ginger beer, served in a copper mug.
The Red Betty features Tito’s Handmade Vodka, muddled strawberries, fresh squeezed lime juice, cane sugar, and fresh basil served up.
Down the Rabbit Hole fuses Suerte Reposado Tequila, muddled pineapple, fresh lime, and agave nectar served in a bucket glass.
The Red Room at Holiday is among one of the few establishments in Orange County serving Henebery Whiskey. The Elder Fashion features Henebery infused rye whiskey, muddled orange juice and Luxardo cherry, splash of bitter, and cane sugar served in a bucket glass.
“We’ve brought the cocktails back to the basics. We wanted to truly accentuate the taste and quality of the ingredients used in each,” commented cocktail curator Aaron Reid.
The concept of Holiday and its Red Room take you back to a classic environment with a bar program that offers a robust list of 1920s and 30s craft cocktails that have been re-envisioned with a modern edge. With live entertainment and unique events nightly, Holiday is the ideal option for special occasions of all kinds. For more information visit HolidayCM.com.
