The North & South Bar at the Pinehurst Resort’s newly remodeled Manor Inn is just the kind of tall, dark and moody that we like. And in a few short weeks, whiskey cocktails and Pinehurst brews will begin flowing.
You’ll find a mix of signature and classic cocktails, with recipes guided by an in-house bourbon expert. At a recent soft opening, we chose two with Woodford — the N&S Old Fashioned, left (with orange-walnut bitters and an orange peel that’s set on fire before being placed in your glass)and the N&S Sour, with egg whites and sweet and sour mix.
While an on-bar attachment allows your Old Fashioned to be smoked on demand, you can get a front-row seat to open flame on the patio.
Cocktail prices start at $14; and while bringing your own hotdog roasting fork would be frowned upon, barbecue from Pinehurst Brewery is just a golf cart ride away.
The North & South Bar is part of Pinehurst Resort’s renovation of the Manor Inn. See more of the Manor here.
