Bourbon, Angostura bitters, peach, lemon, and rosemary. This blended cocktail, called the Nailed It, is proof that summer exists year-round—at least at Wilson Hardware Kitchen and Bar. When this new eatery opened six weeks ago, it brought with it a killer happy hour that has Arlingtonians talking.
Alongside the Nailed It, the Blueprint is another slush-style cocktail offered for $6 during happy hour (4 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday). The Blueprint showcases frozen rosé and vodka, cantaloupe and lemon, and ancho chile and mint. The draft cocktails are also popular options, from the tequila-watermelon Permit Denied to the white rum-pineapple Supply Run ($6 each). Whatever you order to drink, pair it with a "shareable" such as the crab dip, the bacon-garlic brussels sprouts, or the panzerotti, which is fried pizza dough filled with three kinds of cheese and marinara sauce.
