Whatever mood you are looking to set, the restaurant Colterra in Boulder will surely have the drink to do the trick. With a wide selection of creatively named and carefully created cocktails, along with a balanced menu of wines by the glass and bottle, you will be able to find that drink that seems to be calling your name when the 5 o’clock bell rings your freedom.
We all have had a hard day before where a drink named “Death in the Afternoon” may not be such a bad idea, perhaps a way to ease into a relaxing evening after a stressful day. According to the menu at Colterra in Boulder, this is a stiff drink that was invented by Ernest Hemingway. If you are not in the mood for that, perhaps a more romantically named “Honeymoon Cocktail” a.k.a. “Brown Derby” will satisfy. This cocktail comprised of dancing pines spiced rum, lime juice, and maple syrup will surely put you in a more alluring mood.
Colterra also has a wide selection of beers from Colorado and abroad. They even offer a gluten-free beer for those who are going the gluten-free route but still yearn for a beer every now and then. Their wine menu is balanced with white, red, and white sparkling from California, Colorado, Argentina, Spain, Oregon, and France among others. They have the global wine world set out for you to try!
Happy hour is filled to the brim with succulent house marinated olives and roasted marcona almonds sprinkled with coarse sea salt that makes your mouth water for an accompanying wine. For those who did not have time to eat a proper lunch and arrive with more of an appetite, the happy hour menu offers a petite pasture-raised sirloin steak sandwich and a duck confit and hazel dell mushroom ragu among other savory dishes. And those who are seeking a sweet way to spend their afternoon, won’t be disappointed by the “Colterra Bite” which is their petite sweet dessert treat that is oh so rich.
So regardless of what your body and mind is seeking after work this week, rest assured that you will find something to satisfy the senses and the hunger you will be feeling when that five o’clock bell dings.
Happy drinking! Salute-to your health!
