We asked our readers in a social media poll for their thoughts on the best cocktails in the region
The Public House
Fans in our poll felt pretty strongly about The Public House. The Moscow Mule and the Tasteful Nudes were mentioned on our social feed. Our man-on-the-street poll responses also mentioned the bloody marys and the mimosas as a key part of a Public House Sunday brunch. Some also said they serve up the best Old-Fashioned in town. The Public House is at 811 Adams St. in Bay City.
Old Town Distillery
Manhattans served up by Barb at Old Town Distillery were listed as an Old Town Distillery favorite, while others in our poll were excited about any cocktail the establishment serves. A browse through its Facebook page had us craving the watermelon mojito or a bottle of moonshine to go with the recipe for peach cobbler, which includes peach juice and cinnamon sticks. Old Town Distillery is at 124 S. Michigan Ave. in Saginaw.
Facebook fans also mentioned Prost! Wine Bar and Charcuterie in Frankenmuth, which is known for its great cocktails and great patio. The Oxygen Lounge in Midland’s H Hotel was also tapped for serving great drinks, as well as Applebee’s in Birch Run.
