Silk Road Cocktail Collection at Redbird | Vibiana

Redbird | Vibiana Bar Director Tobin Shea introduces his Silk Road Cocktail Collection. Initially inspired by Chef Neal Fraser’s eclectic approach to cooking and, specifically, the Lamb Belly dish, Shea’s 18 cocktails are concocted with herbs, spices and liqueurs inspired by the stories and flavors along the trade route between China and the capital of the Roman Empire that connected the East and the West during the Ancient and Middle Ages.

Stop by Redbird to procure a Silk Road Passport and have it stamped after trying each cocktail in the collection.
