The Bull Moose cocktail was created in honor of our hotel’s namesake and former President of the United States, Mr. Teddy Roosevelt. Teddy was rumored to be a coffee fanatic and drink over a gallon of coffee a day!
In his honor we have created the BULL MOOSE COCKTAIL featuring 1 oz of Patron XO Café mixed with 1 ½ oz of Patron Tequila. This mixture is shaken and served on the rocks with a Twist of Lemon. But why the name “ BULL MOOSE” you ask? You can thank politics for that! Back in 1912 the Progressive Party was created by a split in the Republican Party in the presidential election. It was formed by none other than Theodore Roosevelt when he lost the Republican nomination to President William Howard Taft and pulled his delegates from the convention. This party is colloquially known as the BULL MOOSE PARTY, named for the party’s emblem and after Roosevelt boasted that he was “as strong as a Bull Moose”
