The 26 Best Drinks in Jacksonville

Just Call Us "Cocktailville"

JACKSONVILLE, FL--(Marketwired - November 26, 2014) - After a long day there is nothing more satisfying than sitting down at a local 'Only in Jax' bar and sipping on a signature, hand-crafted cocktail. Made from only the freshest of ingredients, with refreshing juices, invigorating flavors and crisp lip-smacking goodness these locally made beer and cocktails are sure to impress. Delight in the Stolen Fish at Dos Gatos, Jacksonville's genuine cocktail lounge, where a blend of vodka, muddled sweet basil, grapefruit juice, and a lemon twist make up this refreshing and zingy treat. Visit Downtown Jacksonville's The Volstead, a speakeasy style bar that feels like a trip back to the 1920's, and enjoy a Baked Apple Sazerac, a glorious medley of apple, cinnamon, Bulleit Rye, moonshine, and a touch of absinthe, and treat yourself to a Leaving Amazon at Moxie Kitchen and Cocktails in The Markets at Town Center and experience an energizing mix of Veev Acai Spirit, grapefruit, homemade jalapeno simple syrup, grapefruit juice, and lemon zest.
