For those James Bond fans who have always fantasized of speaking the famous words “vodka martini…shaken, not stirred, ” BB’s Kitchen might just be the place where such fantasies may become a reality. BB’s allows you to order your martini any way you like it—shaken, with a twist, a little dirty, manhattan sly, just plain perfect, or the good old-fashioned way.
If the classics bore you, BB’s will accommodate you according to your ability to hold your drinks. For all those light weights, they offer such refreshing drinks as the Orange Mojito with muddled oranges, a far cry from a traditional mojito. However, if you are more of a big hitter, BB’s may suggest a more potent Whiskey Tea made with locally distilled Leopold’s Peach Whiskey.
If you are still holding on once the first drinks have been had, it might be in your best interest to try a drink from BB’s “Into the Evening” category that will reinvigorate and refresh. BB’s Elderflower Margarita is a wise choice, the elderflower offering a healthy does of antioxidants and vitamin C that will fight off that lingering winter cold, preparing you for this coming spring.
Cocktails will keep you busy at BB’s, but if you are a wine and beer connoisseur, BB’s offers a long list of local beer and novel wines.
