Chase Away the Winter Blues with Buckhead Diner’s New Cocktail

December 12, 2016   The Tiki Thai will put you in a warmer state of mind.  In the midst of heavy bourbon drinks and full bodied wines hitting menus for the cooler months, Buckhead Diner adds a surprisingly Summery cocktail to their list. The “Tiki Thai” combines the fresh sweet-tart flavors of fresh pineapple and grapefruit juice with the complex sweetness of dark rum and coconut rum. The result is a cocktail that’s bright and citrusy but complex enough to be interesting.    Buckhead Diner’s Beverage Manager Jessica Purdy says “ We wanted to create a cocktail that would serve as a reprieve from heavy winter cocktails.” It’s even garnished with a luxardo cherry and tiny umbrella. Sip, Relax, Repeat.     Tiki Thai
