What to Drink During OC Restaurant Week

OC Restaurant Week is the Culinary Spring Break for Foodies

OC Restaurant Week | March 4 – 10 | www.OCRestaurantWeek.com


O

C Restaurant Week is here.  It only happens once a year in early Spring (this year from March 4-10); and to have a seriously good time, all you need are reservations and a few good friends. It’s a week of fun indulgence, made better because you don’t have to splurge to enjoy all of the restaurants on your bucket list.  All 150 participating restaurants showcase their talents in multi-course, prix-fixe menus that range from $10-$20 for lunch and $20-$50 for dinner, with an $80 limited “Luxe” menu. Grab a friend or two, or ten (just be sure to make a reservation) and be prepared to watch your restaurant bucket list shrink, one decadent meal at a time.

This year is particularly special because it marks the 10th Anniversary of OC Restaurant Week and to celebrate, participating restaurants offer $10 cocktails that feature Bulleit Whiskey, Chambord Liqueur, Don Julio Tequila, Bailey’s Irish Cream or Ketel One Vodka.  Local mixologist incorporate these liquors, along with housemade bitters, juice, teas, you name it, to make cocktails with memorable names like Memphis Cafe’s, David Bowie inspired cocktail called Dancing Out In Space.

If there’s one thing that I love more than all things food, its words.  I tip my hat to these six creative cocktail names featured during this year’s OC Restaurant Week!
