Celebrate Valentine’s Day At Latitude With “Romeo” & “Juliet”…The Cocktails Not The Depressed Lovers

Despite the fact that Shakespeare’s “Romeo And Juliet” is quite the tragic play I think it was pretty creative of Atlanta restaurant Latitude Food And Drink to introduce both a “Romeo” and a “Juliet” cocktail for Valentine’s Day. As expected the “Romeo” cocktail seems to be geared towards the more manlier drinker while the “Juliet” cocktail seems a bit more feminine. But if you ask me either of the two sound like they’d be a great start to a meal consisting of Mahi-Mahi, butcher steak, or one of Latitude’s other signature dishes.

To give you a better idea of what you can expect with each cocktail I’ve gone ahead and listed the drink recipe for both.
