Description

Join us for our monthly happy hour inspired by the Spanish tradition of La Hora del Vermut!

La Hora del Vermut translates to "Vermouth Hour" and we will transform our bar into a vermutería for the evening to offer our friends and neighbors a place to meet, eat, drink, and mingle.

This month we're featuring vermouth by Contratto, the oldest producer of sparkling wine in Italy.

In 2013, Contratto reintroduced six historic vermouth products to revive the classic spirits and cocktail culture of the 1930s:

~ Vermouth Bianco
~Vermouth Rosso
~ Americano Rosso
~ Fernet
~ Aperitif
~ Bitter

Contratto uses Cortese, an indigeneous white grape variety, as the base for the vermouths, then they infuse it with 30 to 50 organic premium natural herbs, spices, roots and seeds before fortifying with Italian brandy. The process creates a sophisticated elixir that is complex, fresh, and balanced.

Your $18 ticket includes 1 pour and unlimited tapas plus gratuity for your first drink.

The menu will include selections like:

~ salt cod fritters

~ bocadillo with preserved tuna, arugula & aioli

~ bacon wrapped dates stuffed with valdeon and chorizo

~ mushroom crostini with pecorino & balsamic

~ marinated sardine crostini with roasted tomato

~ shishito peppers

~ pork & chicken skewers

Additional pours will be available for $6 per glass. We'll also be offering a special vermouth cocktail menu for the evening. Gratuity for a la carte beverages is not included in this ticket price.
