What’s the inspiration behind this cocktail? 
A Monica Mitchell creation—fun, flirty, and a fan-favorite for our guests!

What cocktail trends do you see occurring in Denver?
I’ve definitely noticed more “farm-to-bar” inspired trends. An immense use of fresh and locally sourced ingredients that bartenders are proud to take their time to create.

Red Sun

In a cocktail shaker, combine:

• 2 ounces Don Julio Blanco
• 3/4 once Aperol
• 3/4 ounce Q Drinks Grapefruit soda
• 3/4 ounce Fresh Lemon Juice
• 1/2 ounce Simple Syrup
• 3-4 dashes Peychaud’s Bitters

Add ice and shake vigorously. Strain into martini glass. Place bamboo leaf on top of 2 chopsticks resting across the glass rim, then garnish with “sushi roll garnish,” made from cucumber wrap, shredded coconut, grapefruit segment, mandarin segment, and blueberry.
