North Central hotspot Leon's Oyster Shop recently added a highly-curated cocktail menu to their bar list, and while a Grasshopper may be a sweet way to end a meal, sometimes you need something a little harder to quell your pounding headache on a Saturday morning.
Enter the Leon's brunch booze menu — there's a Bloody Mary and the classic Corpse Reviver No. 2 ready to squash any hangovers. For something a little lighter, try the grapefruit beer Radler laced with Aperol or a Pimm's Cup (splashed with Shasta!) for a warm day on the patio.
Co-owner Brooks Reitz tells us,
For Leon’s cocktails, I wanted pure, sharp flavors with approachable combinations.Bloody Marys incite passionate debate — and far too many places feel like they need to gild the lily with inappropriate additions or ingredients. We kept it simple, inspired by the Bloody Mary at Prune (in NYC) — and went for classic: tomato juice, prepared horseradish, Tabasco, pepper, etc. Nothing fancy — just good.
Brunch cocktails start this Saturday.
