Little introduction is needed to entice you into checking out the brand-new sippable, soothing and ice-chilled libations at The Desmond Hotel’s Sunset Grille.

Cucumber Gimlet Martini

Definitely a highlight on our list of mixology favorites, this drink boasts a bite of Hendrick’s gin anchored by a mix of muddled cucumber and lime juice to create a refreshing respite using a simple cucumber slice garnish.

Summer Splash

Try something a little sweeter with a whisper of vanilla—this downright pretty, citrus-filled concoction of Captain Morgan rum, tuaca, pineapple juice and orange juice with a splash of grenadine is a colorful treat.

If a curious blend of Tullamore Dew whiskey, peach schnapps and sour mix floats your boat, this multi-level, earthy drink is for you. A sprig of fresh mint gives this cooler its cool.


You’ll swear you’re at an ocean resort as you gulp this intoxicating blend of Cuervo Gold tequila, Cointreau, Chambord, sour mix and cranberry juice with a classic salt-rimmed glass. The hint of raspberry from the Chambord makes this cocktail a sun-filled winner.

So sit back, relax and enjoy live entertainment, happy hour specials and themed parties with famous local bands as you partake of the best of summer “on deck” at Sunset Grille through September.

Better yet, if you want to take the experience of this eye-catching outdoor restaurant to the next level, Sunset Grille is available for corporate and special events, as well as spectacular weddings.
