Morris East offers new cocktails

The days get hotter and the drinks get sexier at downtown gourmet pizza resto

Morris East (5212 Morris Street, 444-7663) has a wine and beverage director. Yeah, we didn’t know either! Well, it’s true, her name is Katrina Roberts and through the artistic science of mixology she’s created The Rio, a frozen martini whose ingredients include mango, cardamom syrup and the Brazilian spirit cachaça. Too late for the Brazilian World Cup fans, but for those enjoying the bossa nova sounds at the Halifax Jazz Festival, this may be the perfect refresher. And on the subject of the HJF, Morris East is also giving customers with tickets to Spontaneous Combustion a free organic martini with a pizza purchase on the evening of the performance (they run Saturday-Tuesday.) And if that isn’t enough, Morris East’s other summer refreshers include: a mojito, passionfruit & basil punch (muddled basil leaves with passionfruit, fresh lime and vodka) and the balm collins (house infused lemon balm gin, fresh lemon wheels and balm leaves).
