Yard House to Introduce Five New and Innovative Handcrafted Cocktails on Feb. 29
With Leap Year comes an extra day and five new handcrafted cocktails from behind the signature island bar at Yard House. On Monday, February 29, Yard House will add a collection of new libations to its innovative beverage menu. 

Known for its creative cuisine and vast selection of draft beer, Yard House is also a destination for enjoying creative handcrafted cocktails served in a fun and casual setting. The new adult concoctions feature fresh ingredients including fresh pomegranate seeds, juicy blood orange, cayenne pepper, seared jalapeños, house-made clover honey syrup and fresh watermelon juice, just to name a few.

“Cocktails, like food, are all about the freshness and quality of the ingredients,” said Gregory Howard, manager of beverage for Yard House. “Palates have become more sophisticated and, as a result, so has what goes on behind the bar. It’s about using ingredients that complement the spirits and add interest to the presentation and flavors inside the glass. Processed, pre-made syrups and salt-rimmed glasses aren’t enough anymore.”

  • The Refresher -­ made with Prairie Cucumber Vodka, St. Germain Elderflower, house-made citrus agave blend, house-made watermelon juice, fresh cucumber and lime, this beverage lives up to its name. Topped with a splash of prosecco served in a tall cooler glass.
