SIP COCKTAILS MADE BY HAND
AT SOME OF THE STATE’S MOST
CELEBRATED BAR PROGRAMS
By Stephanie Burnette
The Living Room at The Dewberry
CHARLESTON
The Living Room at The Dewberry is a chic place to sit and sip. Beverage Director Ryan Casey designed a cocktail program that reflects
on cocktail culture but also looks ahead to what’s next. The Golden
Hour is a resplendent drink, refreshing with floral and citrus notes. A
mixture of Reposado Tequila, Aperol and orgeat, it’s lemon that adds
acid on the finish. And the special touch: It is misted with an atomizer
of citrus extract.
Order: The Golden Hour
Vibe: A dreamy living room from a bygone era.
Crowd: Essential downtown Charleston with its mix of posh locals,
discerning travelers and the libation obsessed.
AC Lounge at AC Hotel
SPARTANBURG
When the train whistles at 5 p.m., bartender Sarah Mitchell crafts a
batch of the hotel’s signature cocktail, The Crescent. The smoked version of Mitchell’s drink is available at the kickoff to happy hour. The
cocktail employs a bevy of clear spirits from local distillery Motte &
Sons, as well as a bit of Izze peach soda and lime, smoked in a large decanter with hickory. The drink is juicy and delicious with a nutty nose,
prepping the palate for one of many locally-driven dinner stops.
Order: The Crescent
Vibe: Beautifully designed and sun-drenched, gorgeous photos occur
naturally here, surrounded by the hotel’s priceless art collection.
Crowd: On your left a German car executive. On your right a blueblood Southerner.
