For visitors that are 21 years old and up, there’s nothing better than getting a delicious meal paired with a drink of your choice! Luckily at Smith & Son Corner Kitchen, we have mouth-watering food and signature cocktails you’ll want to try! Here are 5 Smoky Mountain cocktails you need to try at our downtown Gatlinburg restaurant:
1. Hillbilly Hurricane
When you’re in the mood for a tropical drink, you can’t go wrong with a hurricane! Our Hillbilly Hurricane will satisfy the nostalgia for a beach day while throwing in a little mountain twist! The base of the cocktail is Ole Smoky Moonshine’s Hunch Punch Moonshine, and then our mixologists add sour mix, orange juice, and Sprite to complete this delicious drink.
2. Moonshine Mule
If you enjoy a classic cocktail, then the Moonshine Mule is perfect for you. The way this drink is inspired by the Great Smoky Mountains is using Ole Smoky Moonshine instead of vodka to add a unique flavor! Of course, you’ll still have the fresh lime and ginger beer in your drink. Not only can you get a traditional Moonshine Mule made with Blue Flame, you can choose from flavors like Blackberry, Strawberry, Peach, Orange, or Mango Habañero Whiskey for something different!
3. Blacksmith Featured Cocktail
Another classic cocktail that will pair perfectly with most food on our menu is an Old Fashioned. Our Blacksmith Featured Cocktail is our unique spin on a traditional Old Fashioned. It’s made with Basil Hayden Bourbon, dark brown sugar simple syrup, cranberry bitters, and black cherries.
4. Nutter Butter Old Fashioned
For a drink that’s perfect to pair with dessert, you should try our Nutter Butter Old Fashioned. The mixologists at our downtown Gatlinburg restaurant blend Ole Smoky Pecan Whiskey with Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey and bitters for a Smoky Mountain spin on everyone’s favorite whiskey cocktail. To top it off, this cocktail comes garnished with a Nutter Butter cookie.
5. White Trash
A signature cocktail you’ll want to try when you visit our downtown Gatlinburg restaurant is the White Trash. You’ll be able to taste the Ole Smoky Strawberry Moonshine mixed with pineapple-guava juice and a whole can of White Claw Mango. This is a great fruity drink to pair with any of our entrees!
