River Rocks' winter drink menu brings a cool touch to Florida's warm winter months.
Finding the right restaurant or bar to enjoy a nice drink after a long day or a long weekend is important. Think: some of the most popular sitcoms of all time contain a bar, restaurant or coffee shop where the main characters spend most of their evenings. There is MacLaren’s Pub from How I Met Your Mother, Cheers from Cheers, and a whole host of other fictional bars and coffee shops where fictional characters work out their problems and spend their free time. It just goes to show that good friends and great drinks are some of life’s simplest pleasures.
For many on the Space Coast, River Rocks seems to be that MacLaren’s Pub or Cheers. On any given weeknight or weekend, there are groups sitting at the bar, or laughing over drinks at a table. Of course, this isn’t a shock, as the view is great and the drink menu is diverse. Those behind the bar know how to deliver high-quality fun to their customers, which can be seen in the smiles of all who visit.
How is this fun delivered? Well, there are a few factors that play into it. First and foremost, the bartenders and bar manager, Danny Holman, have years of experience, so not only are they friendly and knowledgeable, but they know how to create the perfect drink. And secondly, because they’ve perfected the classics, they can create their own recipes, and seasonal drink menus are offered to those wanting to experiment and try something new.
Wanting to know what was coming for the winter months, we visited River Rocks on a Thursday evening, and Holman walked us through the four cocktails that will only be available for a limited time. We had a great time laughing, drinking and enjoying those delicious cocktails that can only be found at River Rocks this winter.
