Bluegrass Tavern is a classic neighborhood restaurant in South Baltimore featuring a contemporary American menu and an eclectic wine list and cocktails. From the moment you step through the front door, the woods, rich greens and floor to ceiling windows creates a soothing yet airy feeling. Both floors feature a bar and a dining room.
This cocktail has many different herbs in the mix here, yet they somehow all pull it together to make delicious cocktail. The Barr Hill gin is able to make the herbs less subtle, while the herbs blend together, so that one does not overpower the other.
Our creator of this Signature Cocktail is Stephen. Stephen has been bartending for seven years and has been at Bluegrass Tavern for three years. Bluegrass Tavern was selected as the Best South Baltimore Restaurant in 2015.

Describing it to customers: The combination of flavors gives this drink depth, with spice from the marjoram and ginger melding with the grapefruit notes of the pamplemousse, and the bit of lemon, all balanced by the potent bourbon taste. Good for winter, and an exciting drink with lots of character. Even non bourbon drinkers love this drink. Blue Grass Tavern is located in Federal Hill, which is a nice neighborhood that is walking distance from the inner harbor. Apparently this bar likes its Bourbon and Rye. When you first look in the middle of the bar, it is filled with different Bourbons and Rye. So if you are like me and like your bourbon, you will be in heaven. Don’t worry though if you are a gin or vodka person. There is plenty to choose from and they support the local ones as well.
