Artisan Handcrafted Cocktails
The fall cocktail menu is out and spoiler alert, it’s a work of art. You never know, the bartender serving you the drink could be the one who invented it in the first place, as VASO encourages creativity among its staff. Here are our favorites from the new menu.
Gucci Down - asboult elyx, vetiver infused dolin blanc, orange bitters. A boozy martini-style cocktail to start the night off right.
Beets Per Minute - Watershed Apple Brandy (made in Columbus), Winter Pear, citrus, and raspberry & beet cordial. A delicious fruity drink without being too sweet.
Late Night Feels - Bourbon, Amaro Nonino, Lemon, Cinnamon, Persimmon, Rosemary. Combining frosty flavor with a tropical twist.
Extra Fancy - aged cacacha, thai tea cordial, aqua faba, citrus, tea dust. Basically, the mascot for a girl’s night out.
Don’t worry – they still have your favorites including their signature Gin & Tonic, garnished to the nines with baby’s breath, orange peel and juniper berries.
There's never a lack of creativity on VASO’s menu, crafted under Executive Chef, David Belknap, and their fall offerings are no exception. Here are some of our favorites:
Their “Pan Con” section of the new menu features unexpected combinations served on top of thick-sliced toast. Sure, it’s carbs but you deserve it! We recommend the Pan Con Garbanzo or the Pan Con Atun Catalan (pictured above).
Brotes de Bruselas a La Caesar - brussels sprouts caesar salad, two ways. This “salad” is anything but basic.
Tacos De Berenjenas - flash-fried eggplants, pickled Fresno chilies, cashew cream (SO GOOD), corn tortillas, lettuce, diced tomatoes, mint and lemon. Like these tacos, many of the new items are vegan, yet bursting with flavor.
Ceviche de Atun Arcoiris - smoked tuna, pickled carrots, crispy noodles, pea flower dashi, basil. Technically share-able, but you won’t want to!
