One of the best parts of sitting at the bar at Dogwood Southern Table is asking the bartender to make you something "different." What usually results, after a few questions about  the liquors you prefer, is a totally original cocktail that most likely isn't  on their already diversified and well thought out cocktail menu. The Queen Violet is one of those cocktails and in this video, Brittany Kellum makes this original cocktail for us, a cocktail that was named on the day we filmed.  

Want to try it? You'll have to stop on in, pop a squat at the bar and ask for it by name or better yet visit Dogwood on any Wednesday night for the Cocktail Lab where they serve a different $5 cocktail each week and you know how we feel about  those $5 cocktails... Be sure to follow their Instagram page where they reveal the Wednesday Cocktail Lab drink each week.  (@DogwoodSouthernTable) Cheers!
