Atlanta Contemporary welcomes a local bartender to become the Mixologist-in-Residence – here we invite the purveyors of Atlanta’s cocktail culture to share their story – over a finely crafted drink – with our audiences. 

Mixologist-in-Residence Erika Moore presents a series of cocktails you can make at home! Tag us on Instagram or Facebook with your recreation or original drink. 

Quarantine Cocktail
This cocktail is balanced with sweetness, citrus, spice, bitter, and we can’t forget about the little kick from the apple cider vinegar! We hope you try your own version of this.

Quarantine Martini
This Quarantine Martini is easy to make at home and refreshing. We have the turmeric to add a little spice and immune boosting properties as well as fresh orange juice that’s packed with Vitamin C. This dances perfectly with the botanicals of the gin and rosemary syrup.

Clear Skies Cocktail

The clear skies inspired this cocktail. While we’re inside we can still drink a cocktail to match this beautiful day. This thirst quencher is made with vodka, Rosemary syrup, muddled blueberries, fresh lemon, and topped with green tea! This one is simple and delicious!

Cucumber Refresher
Who loves cucumber? This Gin-based cocktail is great when you're wanting to feel refreshed. The mix of cucumber juice, pineapple juice, mint syrup, and clementine bitters

Dark Berry Martini
Let's get into our dark fruit! Today we have a whiskey martini with muddled blackberries and pomegranate juice shaken with fresh lime juice, simple syrup, and four dashes of Angostura Bitters to balance out the sweetness. This cocktail is tart, sweet, and and refreshing! It's also super simple to make! Enjoy!

Pina Colada
We're heading into May and some of us would have already taken a Spring Break vacation by now. We can't let this circumstance keep us from bringing vacation to a glass. Today we are making a Pina Colada.

Ginger Sage Kentucky Mule
This cocktail is a bright and refreshing cocktail.

Peanut Butter Cocktail
This cocktail is for the dessert lovers. Simple, nutty, and delicious. Tastes like adult ice cream.

Mezcal Sherry
This week we have a beautiful boozy and balanced cocktail. It's smoky and smooth.
