Some days, you just really need a drink. Between the stresses of work, family, love, and anything else that might drive you a little bit crazy, the perfect cap to a rough day is a delicious alcoholic beverage. If you’re an Orlando native, then you’re most likely familiar with the traffic and the hectic nature of the city’s tourism. If you’re anything like me, you understand what I mean.
Fortunately, here at Café Murano, an inspired Italian restaurant, we know exactly how your feel. That’s why we have the best happy hour in town: every drink is half off during happy hour.
We offer a selection of barrel-aged cocktails to help you relax after a hard day. If you’re wondering what a barrel-aged cocktail is, it’s probably because it’s a new trend in the art of mixology. Pre-mixed cocktails are placed in wooden barrels for a specific amount of time, anywhere from a couple of weeks to a few months. This method softens the harshness of some drinks and brings out layers of flavor. It can also pave the way for new drinks, drinks you’ve never tasted before. For example, if a barrel is used to store a whiskey-based cocktail and then used for a gin-based drink, then the second drink might contain elements of whiskey. It makes for a very cool and original drinking experience.
Among the options of barrel-aged cocktails we offer are the Negroni and the White Hook. The Negroni is traditionally made from gin, vermouth rosso and Campari, and garnished with orange bitters. It’s typically served before or after a meal. The White Hook cocktail contains white whiskey, sweet vermouth, and maraschino liqueur.
We currently have two locations in the Central Florida region. The first is located in Altamonte Springs, at a beautiful lakefront setting at Cranes Roost Park. The second location is in the Metro West area of Orlando, at Veranda Park, also with a lovely lakefront setting. This location is just a short drive away from Universal Studios theme parks.
Both locations offer a Happy Hour on Fridays from 4:00pm to 7:00pm. If you’re drinking on a budget but are eager to give these barrel-aged cocktails a try, then make us your destination.
