Detroit’s hospitality scene has been on the come up for quite some time. Cocktail driven, Standby, in downtown’s Belt Alley has been a true stand-out in Motor City. We have been intrigued by their Silk Road cocktail created by Bar Manager, Shane Bang.
“The Silk Road is inspired by the trading route spanning from Japan to the Mediterranean Sea,” says Bang of the cocktail. “Combining the botanical qualities of the gin with dry qualities of the sake and matcha. It has a subtle creamy mouthfeel and the drink evolves from the first sip as the matcha incorporates into the glass. Enticing. Refreshing. Intriguing.”
