Drink of the Week: Lady Sage at AVIA Hotel
The lounge is located directly to the right of the hotel's front doors and is dimly lit with sleek and simple furniture. It's the bartenders and unique cocktail selection that will have you coming back.
Takota, queen of the bartenders, is the type of bartender that seems to really her craft--mixing up new cocktails by experimenting until the recipe is just right. She gave us her latest concoction--the recently coined Lady Sage. A seemingly impossible-to-recreate mixture of sage leaves, lemon, agave, and Oxley gin, the Lady Sage is light and refreshing.
Takota also has a whiskey specialty, the Blackjack. It's made with Jack Daniels and blackberries. Although I tend to avoid whiskey-based drinks, the Blackjack has me rethinking my ways.
Be sure to also check out the hotel's outdoor patio--the perfect place to sip on a drink!
