New Summer Cocktails at Ilios Noche

One of my FAAAVORITE restaurants in Charlotte launched new summertime cocktails this month, and you gotta try them.

Two Scenarios, Juan Solo (left), and Queen City Affair (back right)

I could go on and on about how much I love Ilios Noche, but I’ll save that for another time. Let’s focus on the dranks.


I tried all five concoctions (only two of them in-full, I swear…) alongside delicious spinach pizza, paninis, beet salad, meatballs, etc. Take a peek at the photos/descriptions.

Cecilia (back) and Queen City Affair

Scenario: Rye Whiskey, blackberry infused rosemary, Cynar (Italian liquor), lemon, Cardamom
Cecilia: Gin, Amaro Italiano, watermelon-infused agave, lime juice, Lemon Verbana Tincture
Juan Solo: Chipotle-infused Tequila, pineapple, honey, lime, Luxardo
Queen City Affair: Vodka, mandarin orange, lemongrass, mint (MY FAVE)
Vesuvius: Mezcal, Aperol, peppadew pepper, grapefruit


If you’ve never been to Ilios (located on Providence and on Park at Quail Corners), go go go. The Greek/Italian-inspired menu is to die for. Personal favorites are the lamb burger and the grilled octopus, but I’m slowly working my way through the whole menu.


Email me ( and let me know when you try these babies. Need another excuse to go? Ilios Quail Corners is participating in Restaurant Week right now. 🙂

This post was created after a complimentary meal from Ilios Noche. All opinions are my own.
