The St. Regis Atlanta and Brookhaven Wines
Two of Buckhead and Brookhaven’s premium venues for spring time cocktails
By Kate Parham
What better way to welcome spring than with a bespoke tequila flight on the gorgeous patio of The St. Regis Atlanta? Crafted under Food and Beverage Director Robert Brandenberg, these Private Selection Tequilas were created exclusively for the AAA Five Diamond resort by Herradura in Amatitán, Jalisco, Mexico—the tequilas are made from 100 percent blue agave roasted in clay ovens before aging in toasted oak barrels for 11 months, meaning it’s peerlessly smooth. Guests can partake in two special tequila tasting flights—the Patrón Reposado and Don Julio Reposado ($20) and the Patrón Añejo and Don Julio Añejo ($28)—which are offered alongside seasonal cocktails and live entertainment every Thursday through Sunday evening through the summer. Salud!

The nearly year-old boutique wine shop on Dresden Drive is the result of two oenophile friends, Jeff Madsen and Keith Farmer, following their passion—terroir-driven wines that are as expressive as they are affordable (read: a great bang for the buck). Their store, Brookhaven Wines, not only stocks dozens of unique bottles under $25, but also hosts complimentary tastings with reputable winemakers from around the world. This spring, the likes of Unum Wine Cellars (March 14), Adelsheim Vineyards (March 27), and Vintage 59 (April 18) will all be pouring at the store. “It’s all wine that we dig for the money, and you’ll also get an education about the wines and terroir,” Farmer says. We can say “Cheers!” to that.
