French 75 Guide: East Memphis Style

Alright Mommas!

Here we are again with another French 75 Guide. The first guide was centered in and around Midtown. Check out that guide here! This time we focused on East Memphis!

In creating this guide, I wanted to use the same rating Scale. Unlike Midtown, we couldn’t select a variety of bars that were within walking distance from each other. Therefore, we suggest you plan to Uber to each location or select a DD, Designated Driver. Cool Moms don’t drink and drive. We visited Iris, Hen House, Magnolia and May, Hog and Hominy, and lastly, SOB-East (South of Beale-East).


Rating Scale (1-5, with 5 being the best)

Pizazz - Any added flavors or elevation

If you have an idea about a particular cocktail guide that you’ll like to see, let me know! I’ll do the leg work and go around drinking them for you! And if you’d like to join me, let me know that too. We’re currently working on the Downtown Cocktail Guide and it’ll feature more, More, MORE!


Side Note: Again, we did all of these drinks in a single night!!!  I wasn’t hungover at all. I’m not sure if it was because of the pit-stop at Gibson’s Donuts, the intermittent snacks, or the hydration sessions we had in between each stop. But whatever it was, it worked!

Now, I have the Mommiest Bladder of all Mom Bladders. (I should probably schedule a pelvic floor session with Sundara.) Nevertheless, I peed buckets that night! And I’m proud to say that none of those buckets were on myself. Not even a sprinkle!(But maybe a tinkle if I’m honest.)
