Warm days call for tropical cocktails and Pen & Quill in Station North, Baltimore has the best Tiki Tuesday in town. Possibly the only Tiki Tuesday in town, at least the only one I’ve come across, offers a variety of tropical themed cocktails complete with fresh ingredients and fruit garnishes.
I’ve been to Pen & Quill a handful of times, but I can specifically remember two times I visited on a Tuesday. The first time was on a whim and I liked the cocktails so much that I went back on another Tuesday.
My favorite tiki cocktail at Pen & Quil is the “Zombie”. It’s not your typical tropical drink, it’s sweet but strong. So strong that the menu has a warning “a limit of two per customer is necessary lest it carry you away to the other side”. What a warning! My kind of drink. The “Zombie” includes a blend of three rums, fresh juices and marachino liquor.
They also offer classic cocktails such as the Mai Tai or Pina Colada (rum, coconut, pineapple and lime.) They even have a local themed cocktail “Baltimore Grog” that includes a blend of three rums, grapefruit, lime and honey syrup. There are nine cocktails total on the Tiki Tuesday menu, they are $10.00 each and all except one includes rum. The other ingredients and juices are made fresh by the Pen & Quill bar staff.
We also ordered Deviled Eggs and Fried Oyster Steam Buns from the Happy Hour menu.
If you are looking for a tropical getaway on random Tuesday evening, visit Pen & Quill (1710 N. Charles Street) or use the ingredients mentioned above and make your own tropical drinks at home.
