• Juice up your brunch
Far from where you would expect a tropical paradise, John J’s Chow Hall, at the Graduate Lincoln, is located in the Haymarket District and has a menu that will have your attendees juiced in any season. This 1940s-style, tropical tiki bar in Lincoln, NE lends itself to a world of libation exploration with highly-juiced offerings.
It is said that few things go better with bacon than bourbon. With that in mind, the General Robson was created. The traditional tiki flavor is represented in the pineapple juice, making this pineapple infused Mint Julep variation a hit.
To create the General Robson you will need the following ingredients:
Glass: PIG EAR (pictured above), or any mixing glass you have available
8 Mint Leaves, spanked
1 oz Mint Lemonade (.5oz mint syrup, .5oz lemon juice)
1 oz Pineapple Juice
2.5 oz Four Roses Bourbon
Shake all liquid ingredients with crushed ice for 10 seconds or until dissolved.
Pour into empty cup and fill with crushed ice.
Garnish with a pineapple wedge, spanked mint bouquet, and a dusting of cinnamon.
Is your group close? Consider sharing the Colonel Franzen. This is John J. Chow Hall’s take on an old Tiki Classic, the ‘Scorpion Bowl’. Traditionally a mix of White Rum, Spiced Rum, Cognac, and Gin mixed with a blend of citrus, pineapple, and Orgeat. The bold, Juniper-forward gin adds a great botanical complexity to the drink, which is served in a cowboy hat cup ready to be shared.
The next time you are in Lincoln, enjoy the vibe of the tropics, day or night, with a tiki creation bound to spark festive conversations.
