BANK Restaurant, located within the Westin Minneapolis, is incorporating magic into its cocktail menu and atmosphere with the launch of Magic & Mixology Night every Tuesday from 5 – 7 p.m. beginning September 18, 2018. From smoking ice to blooming flowers, BANK’s menu will offer three featured and highly unusual cocktails.
In addition to magical drinks, local magician and comedian David Harris will entertain guests with table side illusions. Harris is a nationally touring Midwest Emmy Award winning comedian, magician, actor, and host.
The inaugural Magic & Mixology Night on September 18 will feature the following cocktails:
• Botanical Buzz – this herb infused cocktail releases a naturally occurring alkaloid that leaves a tingling or numbing sensation in the mouth, followed by a cooling feeling in the throat
• Smoked Cocktail – this old-fashioned comes with a twist; it’s infused with real smoke
• Ice Sphere Cocktail–this entire cocktail is served inside a ball of ice
Additional drinks to be featured throughout the Magic & Mixology Night series include, but are not limited to:
• Fog Burner Cocktail –served inside a hollow ice ball, this mezcal negroni is presented under a smoke-filled glass
• Tea Cocktail –witness a flower blooming in your glass
• Fire & Ice Cocktail – a tribute to Game of Thrones, guests get the best of both worlds when they drink this cocktail out of an ice ball with fire underneath
• Color Changing Cocktail – this drink will attract chemistry fans when our mixologist alters the ph level and changes the cocktail from blue to purple
