Gene & Georgetti is offering bourbon libations inspired by the Kentucky Derby to benefit Storybook Farm, an equine riding facility that helps children faced with a variety of physical, emotional, social and cognitive challenges embrace and celebrate life.
The cocktails will be available from May 1st through May 13th at both Downtown and Rosemont locations. Both locations will show the Kentucky Derby in the bar lounge on Saturday, May 4th, and festive attire is encouraged.
First, pick your bourbon from $10 to $16, including Maker’s Mark, Woodford Reserve and Hudson Baby Bourbon,then mix it into a cocktail including classics Mint Julep, Old Fashioned, Manhattan; a Bourbon Sour, with fresh lemon, sugar and cherry; a Revolver with Tia Maria coffee liqueur, a dash of orange juice, orange twist; Bourbon Snap, with Peach Schnapps, Canton ginger liqueur, orange juice; or the Boulevardier, the American Negroni.
For a personal twist, order the refreshing Royal Reese- bourbon, Chambord, muddled mint, sugar and ginger beer. The cocktail is named after Reese, the beloved horse owned by equestrian and Gene & Georgetti managing partner Michelle Durpetti. A portion of proceeds from the cocktail program will go to Storybook Farm, where Reese is currently residing and giving his affection to children in need.
