Pins' Winter Cocktails Menu Will Chase Away Those Seasonal Blues

The weather outside is frightful, but the fire and cocktails at Pins Mechanical Co. are so delightful.

Yes, friends, it’s the holiday season again. It gets dark early, the skies are grey, but there are plenty of places to drink and be merry, including Pins Mechanical.

The OTR bowling alley and bar is happy to launch their winter cocktail menu, which is the perfect accompaniment to Pins’ cozy surroundings and fun games to get you through the winter doldrums.

The menu, crafted by Pins’ talented bartenders, captures the season with selections that range from a grownup Cherry 7-Up (Sleigh All Day) to pie in a glass (Jingle Balls). Here’s the full list:

  • Sweater Weather
    Gin + Triple Sec + cranberry + ginger beer + orange
  • Cran-Brrr-Ita
    Tequila + ginger +lemon + cranberry bitters
  • Spare Pear
    Bourbon + pear syrup + lemon + Sprite
  • Jingle Balls
    Moonshine + apple puree + cinnamon syrup
  • Sleigh All Day
    Cherry vodka + lemon + pomegranate syrup + Sprite
  • Winter Classic
    Bourbon + vanilla + honey + chocolate bitters
  • Winter Sangria
    Red wine + cinnamon rum + lemon juice + pomegranate juice + fresh fruit

Of course, a few regular menu items are sticking around, like the Pinball Wizard, Pomegranate Mule, and The Baller.

If you’re not into cocktails, they have wine, an extensive craft beer list, and non-alcoholic selections as well. Don’t forget about happy hour—Monday through Friday from open until 7 PM with $2 off specialty cocktails, draft beer, and wine.

While their rooftop bar is closed for the season, you can still grab one of those cocktails and chill by the firepits, or you can stay inside and play duckpin bowling, foosball, pinball, or ping pong.

Pins also hosts parties! Visit their website to request an event for your office, family or friends to celebrate the season.
