ATLiens: The Georgia Dome

The name of this cocktail is pretty self explanatory. It's my ode to the beloved Georgia Dome of my beloved second home, Atlanta that was demolished last year. 

During my college years in ATL, I spent so many drunken nights riding up and down Northside Drive partying in, next to or near the arena. It was impossible to miss and a staple in the community. 

This is a toast to you!
