This Mother’s Day, why not honor your mom at the restaurant paying homage to Marjorie, Donna’s mom?  Donna asked for something a little special, and Joseph complied with an elegant menu that is fit for a Queen.

There are craft cocktails to be enjoyed.  Marjorie’s bartenders all partake in creating an inventive and interesting cocktail menu, often featuring our amazing distiller neighbors, Sidetrack and Oola.  Chef Joseph assists by providing lots of fresh components.  The end result? A really good cocktail!

It goes, of course, without saying that the menu was composed and created with Mom in mind.  It is all about having something a little special on Mother’s Day!

Ever wondered how new cocktails are created?  One of Marjorie’s newest cocktails, 10 Degrees, was created spontaneously one evening at the Marjorie bar.  Intent on using Oola’s Cask Aged Gin and Sidetrack’s new Lemon Verbena Liqueur, the main ingredients were established, but there was just a little something missing.

KT, owner of the 10 degrees, an unusual and intimate venue on 14th and Union, suggested using Zirbenz Stone Pine Liqueur.  Who knew? It gave the drink the perfect balance.

What better way to show gratitude for the contribution than to name the drink with a nod to our neighbor, and proprietress of a great space, 10 degrees.  Perhaps your next event will be there!
