With football season upon us, it’s time to get your game day drinking plans lined up. And what better way to cheer on your favorite team than with a craft cocktail with Amaro Lucano, fresh strawberries and citurs served in a red Solo cup?
“The Top Cat was inspired by nostalgic fun, from childhood to college days,” explains Thomas Merolla, head bartender at Purdy Lounge. “Aside from being served in a red solo cup–a college staple–the drink features Amaro Lucano with fresh strawberry, touch of citrus and charged with a childhood favorite, orange Fanta.”
The concoction is topped off with orange Red Bull, “a little energy boost to keep you going throughout the whole football game,” says Merolla. “The Top Cat is a bittersweet, balanced and fun cocktail you can’t put down.”
