Cheers to Our NEW Craft Cocktail Menu!

Copy-of-Untitled-4

We're shaking things up behind the bar here at Michael's On East. Our team of mixologists has worked hard to develop innovative new craft cocktails with inspiration from available local ingredients and the restaurant’s international relationships.

The Cape Town Sundowner cocktail is inspired by Co-Proprietor, Michael Klauber’s experience enjoying a classic safari ‘sundowner’ cocktail while leading the biennial Gulf Coast Connoisseur Club trip to South Africa. “I’ll never forget our first sip of a sundowner with Inverroche while visiting Londolozi Game Reserve. We knew immediately it was a special part of Africa we’d like to offer our friends back at home!” explained Klauber.

Whether a guest prefers sweet, rich, or fresh drinks, there are enticing options for any palate. 

These Insta-worthy creations own their intriguing names such as Fu Lang Chang, Hola Santo, and Green with Envy. There's something for everyone from modern twists on old favorites to new handcrafted creations.
