Ronnie McDonnie Cocktail at The Gin Joint

Throughout the month of February, The Gin Joint is featuring a cocktail to benefit the Ronald McDonald House of Charleston. All profits from the cocktail we’ve playfully called the “Ronnie McDonnie” will go to the organization that provides a home away from home for families while their children undergo extensive medical treatment.

Created by our beverage director James Bolt, the cocktail features chile-infused mezcal, along with Aperol, lime juice and salted honey for a unique, yet approachable take on a smoky margarita. The drink’s red hue, given by the bittersweet aperitif Aperol, was inspired by Ronald McDonald’s signature red shoes [which you also find on display inside].

Our crew has loved supporting the local Ronald McDonald House in the past by cooking and serving  meals for families staying in the home. Now, we want to give people a feel-good reason to come enjoy a cocktail… or two.

On the menu from February 1st through 28th, the “Ronnie McDonnie” cocktail is $10, and ALL proceeds of the drink go to the Ronald McDonald House of Charleston. See what else is on the seasonal cocktail menu here.

This Saturday, November 14, join us at The Gin Joint for an evening featuring The Dewberry’s bar manager, Ryan Casey mixing cocktails alongside our own bar manager, James Bolt. The night will include a special cocktail menu with libations from both Casey and Bolt, in addition to our Bartender’s Choice section where guests can order using two adjectives.

This is the first time in The Gin Joint’s five year history that a guest bartender will join during service to help shake, sling, and swizzle cocktails.

The Dewberry is set to open in Spring 2016 in the reimagined Federal Building, a midcentury landmark overlooking Marion Square. Ryan Casey is the manager for The Dewberry’s bar program and is an esteemed Charleston mixologist previously known for being behind the bars of Fig, McCrady’s and Edmund’s Oast in Charleston. In 2014, he was named one of Food & Wine‘s “Best New Mixologists.”

The Gin Joint is set to open at its normal time of 3:00 p.m. with Ryan Casey behind the bar from 4:00 p.m. until midnight. No reservations or RSVP are required to attend — simply drop in The Gin Joint and have a drink with us.
