Peachy hit Nashville and had a wonderful time checking out the hot spots for drinks, food and music. With so many places to try, we took the city by storm and each night had two or three places lined up for drinks, appetizers and entrees.
On our second night, the Peachy team headed to The Patterson House, where you enter through a door covered with red velvet curtains into a Great Gatsby/speakeasy atmosphere. This is where the locals go for amazing hand-crafted cocktails. The Juliet & Romeo was one of our favorites. The staff was incredibly knowledgeable and service was spot-on. We wanted a little something to eat after a long day of touring and ordered a couple of appetizers to go along with our cocktails. The doughnuts and grilled cheese were our two favorites.[schema type=”recipe” name=”The Patterson House’s Juliet & Romeo” image=”https://peachythemagazine.com/peachy/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/The-Patterson-House.jpg” ingrt_1=”2 ounces Beefeater Gin” ingrt_2=”¾ ounce fresh lime juice” ingrt_3=”¾ ounce simple syrup” ingrt_4=”3 drops Angostura bitters” ingrt_5=”3 drops of rose water” ingrt_6=”3 slices cucumber muddled, sprinkled with 5 grains salt” ingrt_7=”Fresh mint” instructions=”Lightly muddle three sprigs of mint on top of muddled cucumber.
