After a long, cold Winter, and with the advent of our very short Spring season, tastes move towards refreshing, cooling and effervescent drinks that will compliment the many garden arrivals, seasonal seafoods, bbq and fresh herbs. At MAS we've added several Spanish traditional Sidras or ciders, as light as lagers but not as dense as a Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay or Albarino. Along with Sidras we're offering the Belgian ales of La Chouffe, Hoegarden, Northern Lights of Starr Hill, and seasonal brews from Blueridge Brewery. Local winemaker Claude Thibaut has given us his Thiebaud-Janisson Blanc de Chardonnay Monticello Brut, a creamier counterpoint to the briskly dry Spanish Cavas. Both are crafted through the methode champenoise process and excellent. and we finally got our hands on the elusive Txakolina Rosado "Rubentis", a fresh light-ruby throated summer wine crisply acidic w/ rhubarb and strawberry in its nose. Don't overlook the staples of our light to medium bodied wines, Sherries, including some really stellar Finos, Manzanillas, and Olorosos. And last but not least, the crisp, green apple, grapefruit and pear-scented Ruedas, Albarinos, and Viuras.
Last but not least are our specialty cocktails which utilize infused spirits, fresh herbs, muddled fruits and extracts to tickle your palate and stimulate your appetite with Caiparinas, Mojitos, Gimlets, Old-Fashioneds, Sazeracs, Margueritas & Cosmos. We'll see you on the patio!
