Texas Bars and Restaurants bring “Spirit” of Olympics to the Lone Star State

On Friday, viewers across the world watched the spectacular opening ceremonies of the 2012 Olympic Games in London. And even though the celebration of the Olympics is taking place across the pond, there are a few Texas bars and restaurants that are managing to bring the “spirit” of the Olympics to the Lone Star State. Check out these delicious Olympic-inspired cocktails being served across Texas throughout the 2012 Olympic Games.

Malai Kitchen (Celeb Mixologist Jason Kosmas). This is an Olympic-sized cocktail for two people

Singapore Sling
2 ½ oz Beefeater Gin
1 ½ oz Triplum (Luxardo)
1 oz Benedictine (B&B)
1 ½ oz lime juice
2 oz Cherry Heering Liqueur
6 oz pineapple juice
6 dashes bitters

“This is the original Singapore Sling recipe from the Raffles Hotel. I learned this recipe from Dale Degroff (who also re-introduced it to the hotel of its origin). We are treating it like a punch as it has a plethora of ingredients: gin, Cherry Heering, Cointreau, Benedictine, Angostura Bitters, lime juice, and pineapple juice. It is classic from that part of the world and is great in hot weather as a drink to share.” – Kosmas
