It is the third Ink N Ivy location (other outposts can be found in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Greenville, South Carolina) from The Bottle Cap Group, a Charlotte-based hospitality company with 13 concepts under its umbrella. The Charleston hot spot opened in August with delectable American cuisine, craft beer, an extensive wine list sure to please any palette, and a superb selection of cool cocktails customized by expert bartenders.
One of the most popular drinks on the menu is the Alternative Snacks cocktail, a rum-based concoction with a surprising addition: salted dill oil. The savory ingredient pairs well with sweet and citrusy elements — because who doesn’t love a salty/sweet mixture? M&M’s and popcorn, anyone?
