Tony Award-Worthy Cocktails II: Best Featured Cocktail in a Play

Welcome to part two of our look at the best Featured Show Cocktails of the 2017-18 theater season! If you missed part one, check it out here.

Today we’re honoring the dramatic drinks we served up at some of this year’s nominated plays. From comedy to tragedy. From drama to farce. Our theater partners always give us an exciting array of plays to work with each season – and we always cast the right cocktail for the part. Let them revive their roles at your Tony night cocktail party.

And now, our awards for Best Performance by a Featured Cocktail in a Play…

FINANCIAL REFORM from Junk

This visionary cocktail was a hot commodity during the run of Junk. Its value has not depreciated, so it’s equally refreshing now as it was in the cooler months. It’s sure to put you in a mood to put your finances in order.
