Cork Bar Specialty Cocktail, Spanish Gold

Cork Bar Celebrates Joan Miró: The Experience of Seeing at The McNay Art Museum with Specialty Cocktail, Spanish Gold.

Inspired by Joan Miró’s vivid paintings and Spanish heritage, the Spanish Gold cocktail was developed by our resident mixologist. In addition to Cinco Vodka, the cocktail includes Licor 43 /Cuarenta y Tres, an iconic Spanish liquor developed in the early 20th century in Cartagena, Spain and still produced on the Mediterranean shore by the Zamora family exclusively since in 1946. Spanish Gold also features Ancho Reyes, giving the drink a kick of chili with moderate heat, slight acidity and hint of the spices tamarind, plum and cacao.  It is topped with coconut froth and is available for $12.

About the Exhibition
Featuring more than 50 remarkable paintings, drawings, and sculptures created by Joan Miró between 1963 and 1981, Miró: The Experience of Seeing is drawn entirely from the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid, Spain. The exhibition features bold, colorful, and often playful compositions that highlight the artist’s ingenuity and offers a fresh assessment of the late period of Miró’s work—something that audiences in the United States have not yet had the opportunity to explore in depth.  The McNay is the only southwest venue and final stop of the exhibition’s U.S. tour which includes the Seattle Art Museum; The Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University; and Denver Art Museum.
