With two successful Costa Mesa locations under their belt, Greenleaf Gourmet Chopshop debuted a new cocktail menu – unique cocktails made with wine-based liquors and house made ingredients. With flavors that remind you of the holidays or a warm, winter day in Orange County, the bar staff has just the right libation to wet your whistle.
Let’s take a look at some items on the New Cocktail Menu:
Cranberry Noir contains Leese Fitch Pinot Noir, cranberry juice, vanilla extract, lemon zest, sea salt, and sparkling soda. It had a light flavor - creamy vanilla aroma on the nose and floral finish. The lemon zest added a zingy flavor. I found the cranberry flavor was too subtle as the pinot noir took over the palate, but had a beautiful deep magenta color. Thumbs up!
