The Sweet & Savory Side

This Sunday ‘s brunch menu!! Come see us at Amendment 21 from 11-3pm!!🍈🌮🍳🥓🍪

Our final featured employee is our least recognized, but by far one our most valuable employees on our staff! Kenneth Gee is a man of many job titles, because he does everything you don’t see behind the scene. Since he loves tequila, our featured cocktails this week will be inspired by some of his personal favorites!

Mary’s featured cocktail for tonight is called Bulleit & Bubbles
•Bulleit Rye •Pama •Lemon •Simple •Cranberry juice •Lunetta Prosecco

We are adding three great bourbons to our whisk(e)y selection this weekend! They can be enjoyed by the pour, or added to a flight while letting our experienced bartenders walk you though the history and taste profiles that makes each one so unique!

Downtown ABI

"Even though we rely heavily on our Abilene geographic, we have seen an impressive uptick in out-of-town visitors that love what we are doing. The number one complaint we get from out-of-town visitors, is the fact they love what we have going downtown, but there is nowhere for them to stay in proximity of our downtown districts(NODA/SODA). We understand the development of a thriving downtown will bring in competition, but we are looking more into the positives of having a higher population density downtown to increase curbside foot traffic, which drives more revenue to our business."

Follow the link to hear more from Amendment 21 owner Stanton Taylor and his view on the proposed Downtown Hotel.

Our fourth featured bartender is Mary Pruit. Mary has been bartending for one year and her favorite cocktail is a vodka martini. When we asked Mary what her favorite thing about bartending is, she said, “I enjoy socializing with people. I love being able to put a smile on someones face just by making a drink they love!”

Taylor’s second featured cocktail is a Kentucky Tea.
•Larceny Wheated Bourbon
•Brown Sugar

Taylor’s featured cocktail for tonight is the New Fashioned🥃
•Weller Special Reserve
•St. Germaine
•Orange Bitters
•Orange Slice

Taylor Moore is our featured bartender for this week. He has bartended for 7 years, and his favorite whiskey is Weller 12. Taylor’s favorite thing about bartending is, “Interacting with all sorts of different people each day, and the mutual satisfaction of getting the drink just right.”

There is a lot to be thankful for in our first year of business. We have very supportive family and friends, an amazing staff, but most importantly a loyal customer base! Thank you Abilene for exceeding our expectations, and we look forward to many more years to come! Join us today as we have a chance to give back to YOU for your support.
