New Summer Cocktails at Ilios Noche

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

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.

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