Chatham Artillery Punch

The history of this delicious craft cocktail dates back to the Savannah regiment and is a beloved favorite within the city. Brandy, whisky, rum, lemon, sugar and champagne certainly packs a punch. Taste this Savannah favorite at popular spots, like The Shrimp FactoryArtilleryPeregrin and Alleycat Lounge, will serve it nice and cold whether it be above ground, on a roof or underground speakeasy.

Blood Orange Martini

This signature cocktail is smooth, light, elegant and sweet, thanks to our friends at Ele and The Chef. They've put an official checkmark on this libation masterpiece which can be found on any of their 12 illustrious cocktail menus.

Gin & Tonic

Don't call it a comeback! This oldie but goodie is returning to the bar scene with a vengeance. Tradition calls for gin and tonic water, but establishments such as The Fitzroy, The Collins QuarterThe Public Kitchen & Bar and Repeal 33 know how to put their own spin on it.


Ah yes, the brunch drink of champions. Everyone can see that the mimosa has undergone a true metamorphosis over the years. This satisfying libation has become the chameleon of the pub world, sticking with its champagne base while becoming playful with fruity accents. You can find this staple at The Ordinary Pub, The Collins Quarter and Cafe M, where brunch is highly recommended. 


Frozen, shaken, stirred, not stirred, salt, no salt - who cares? No matter how you take it, the margarita is always a delicious choice. There isn't a dish that this beauty won't compliment and Jalapenos, Tequila's Town, Savannah Tequila Company, Orale Tacos, Bull Street Tacos and Java Burrito Co. can vouch for that.

Bloody Mary

If you could've had a V8, surely you'd rather have a Bloody Mary. It's like gazpacho except with more spice, salt, lemon and, most importantly, vodka. Be sure to meet your daily veggie quota at Churchill's, PS Tavern, Common Restaurant and Crystal Beer Parlor.

Moscow Mule

You'll get a "kick" out of this one. At times served in a high ball glass but most recognized in its signature copper mug, Moscow mules are a delicious combination of ginger beer and vodka garnished with a tart twist of lime. Find this beverage at any of the Treylor Park restaurants, Common Restaurant, B. Matthews Eatery and Crystal Beer Parlor.

Old Fashioned

Some drinks remain a classic for a reason. In Savannah, we believe if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Good Times Jazz Bar, Alleycat Lounge, The Original Pinkie Masters, Artillery and Churchill's understand that when life hands you whisky, make an old fashioned.
