On the Scene: Fee Brothers' End of Prohibition Party

Posted By on Sat, Mar 31, 2012 at 4:57 PM

Sweet Grass Next Door was all abuzz last Thursday evening during the End of Prohibition party. Patrons were dressed in “hats, spats, and pearls” and looking for love in one of the 12 cocktail specials made with Fee Brothers bitters. (Read more about the Fee Brothers in last week’s Food News.)

We sampled three of the 12 concoctions and gave each a high rating.

The French 79 (above) was tart and refreshing, made with 209 gin, lemon syrup, Prosecco, rhubarb bitters, and cranberry bitters.

The Chocolate Cherry Prosecco was subtly sweet, with a light chocolate flavor in the Aztec chocolate bitters, cherry bitters, and Riondo Prosecco, and the Plum Fu Girl was just plum delightful with Kung Fu Girl Riesling, lemon, soda, syrup, and plum bitters.

Chef Ryan Trimm’s appetizers included treats like: Pimento cheeseburger sliders, spiced skewered shrimp, pPork snout Reubens, and beef carpaccio (above) wrapped around asparagus and blue cheese.

Joe Fee himself was on hand to chat about his bitters, and he also introduced us to their line of pickle juices and olive juice (below).

It was a rollicking good time with tasty eats and festive drinks. Welcome to Memphis, Fee Brothers!
