Winding Down with AFBS

One of the things I love about Atlanta is the number of restaurants that offer terrific atmospheres for winding down after work.  Last Monday, I joined members of the Atlanta Food Bloggers’ Society for appetizers and cocktails at Sweet Auburn Barbecue and found it to be just the right kind of laid back for an After 5 gathering.

While waiting for everyone to arrive I ordered a nice Strawberry Lemonade which really hit the spot considering how hot it had been outside earlier. After going over the beverage menu a few times, I finally settled on The Walking Red cocktail. It’s a pleasant yet mild blend of St. George Botanivore Gin, Byrrh, Grapefruit, Lime and Leopold Brothers Absinthe. Between sips, I was able to soak in a bit of the charm in the restaurant’s decor. The space was semi-rustic with an eclectic assortment of lighting fixtures, wood furnishings and wall decor. I adore spaces like this.
