The cocktail menu will include a section featuring of large-format cocktails, perfect for sharing with friends and family. The new “Pitcher Perfect” cocktails will include: Pomelo with silver tequila, grapefruit soda and lime; Lemon Cooler with vodka, lemon iced tea and thyme; and Navy Grog with light and dark rum, grapefruit orange and pineapple.
Yaching clientele will be happy to hear that the beachfront restaurant’s popular “Torpedo” service will be back this season, with a new and larger launch running weekends from late June through Labor Day. Yachts anchored in Fort Pond Bay will now also be able to order delivery from the restaurant via the eazyo app.
