We’re in that magical period between the remnants of a cold, damp winter and the sweltering summer heat that inevitably surrounds the city come June. Spring in Houston definitely calls for a celebration of the cocktail variety, so we asked Chapman and Kirby Marketing Coordinator Sabrina Sanchez for three personal favorites to kick off the season.

Chapman and Kirby’s Rosé 75 (left) and The Summit (right)

Her first suggestion is the “Rosé 75,” the Chapman and Kirby twist on a classic French 75. It is made with Nolet’s Gin, fresh lemon juice, lavender and Chandon Rosé, then garnished with a lemon twist.

Though some people think of whiskey as a cold weather drink, missing out on a good spring whiskey cocktail would be a mistake. Case in point: Sanchez recommends “The Summit” for the whiskey lover that wants something refreshing for spring. It is made with Jack Daniel’s Gentleman Jack Whiskey, Grand Marnier, fresh lemon juice, simple syrup and mint.

Chapman and Kirby’s Inside the Loop cocktail

Finally, what’s better than a mojito in the spring? According to Sanchez, the “Inside The Loop,” which is similar to a mojito but ten times better. Made with Bacardi Maestro Rum, fresh lime juice, honey, angostura bitters, mint and prosecco, it’s bubbly and fresh—a perfect sipper for Chapman and Kirby’s chic patio.

All of Chapman and Kirby’s cocktails are regularly priced at $11, but special happy hour pricing will net you $7 cocktails all day Wednesday (4 p.m. – 11 p.m.) and on Thursdays and Fridays from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. 

Thanks to Sabrina for filling us in on her favorites.
