Chef Adán Medrano Dinner Menu

Red Jalapeño Champagne Cocktail, “Southwest Sunrise”

  • “The Southwest Sunrise” begins with lush peach nectar to ground us in our region, the richness and beauty of Georgia.  It is blended with the juice of Guava, native to Mexico, Central America and South America.  Tamarind adds another layer of richness along with a hint of Jalapeño jelly. “The Southwest Sunrise” is then finished with Mexican lime juice and a dash of sparkling water, refreshing and effervescent as our future: one community, many histories, working together for our common good.
