Equal parts Demerara sugar and water, bring to boil and add fresh mint. Let it steep for 2 hours, strain mint. Enjoy!

This cocktail can best be described as a blend of seasonal flavors in which mint, caramel apple, and vanilla prevail. I would have to say this is a great fall cocktail.

Ouzo Bay is located in Harbor East, which is a great little area of shops, restaurants and hotels. Ouzo Bay specializes in Greek cuisine and an assortment of signature cocktails that should suit everyone’s taste. They go that extra mile by serving a complimentary after dinner cocktail.

William Escalante is the head bartender at Ouzo Bay and obviously enjoys his trade by adding a little flair to his service. This is not the first time we have seen Will behind the bar – he has also participated in a wonderful event for Cystic Fibrosis called Rye’s Up Against Cystic Fibrosis. This event has some of the finest bartenders in Baltimore, so you know you are pretty much guaranteed a great cocktail from William.
