We are pumped for this weekend. Not only is it Memorial Day weekend (we’re open!), but we’re also partnering with Copper & Kings and Hawthorne Beverage Group to host an awesome cocktails and rock ‘n’ roll event they’re doing across the country. This Saturday, Copper & King’s The MixT&pe is hitting Charleston!

In different cities across the U.S., bartenders choose from their musical influences to create unique cocktails with Copper & Kings American Brandy. These drinks are inspired by a particular artist and album. It’s rock ‘n’ roll paired with cocktails at some of the top bars, featuring top bartenders.

For The Mixt&pe: Charleston, James Bolt (The Gin Joint’s bar manager) and Josh Durr from Hawthorne Beverage Group will be behind the bar mixing up cocktails inspired by and created specifically to match the music of the evening — Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” and Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the U.S.A.” We’re turning it back to the 80’s and serving up a special menu of cocktails – just for the night!

Here’s The MixT&pe menu for the night:
By James Bolt, inspired by Michael Jackson – Thriller
P.Y.T Trouble [Copper & Kings Blanche Absinthe, Lemon, Riesling, Genepi, Rhubarb, Herbs de Provence]
Forty Eyes [Copper & Kings Craft Brandy, Corn Husk, Black Eyed Pea Dem, Montenegro, Rum]
By Josh Durr, inspired by Bruce Springsteen – Born in the U.S.A.
Cover Me [Craft Brandy, Rye, Fino Sherry, Lime, Sugar, Thyme]
