TAG introduces its new bar staff and summer cocktails

Mike Henderson may have

other projects

, but the cocktail show at

TAG

must go on. TAG tender Brian Melton will take over lead mixology duties, while floor manager Travis Plakke will take care of the behind-the-scenes details.

And in TAG's dark basement lounge on Tuesday night, the recently re-formed bar staff rolled out its lineup of summer cocktails to a crowd of party-goers, gleaning feedback on favorite patio sippers, and showing enthusiasts that even post-Henderson, the beverage program at the restaurant packs a punch.

The new beverages preserve the theme of the old, playing on the same brand of fusion that chef Troy Guard employs in his food. Our favorites included a spicy and tart Thai-ginger margarita flanked with peppery seasoning instead of salt on the glass rim and the "To Your Health," a blend of gin, blackberry, raspberry, and Kombucha tea.
