Where to Celebrate Earth Day With Local and Organic Drinks in Denver

Go organic for Earth Day

We here in Denver love our great outdoors. We have beautiful mountains to play in and when we’re done, we have delicious cocktails and beers to drink. So when Earth Day rolls around we give thanks to Mother Earth by sipping an earthy and organic concoction. We should really be celebrating the Earth all year long, but in case we forget to do so, Earth Day is Wednesday, April 22. Here are some bars and restaurants where you can raise a toast to the Earth with 'green' drinks.

Over in the Republic of Boulder, the St. Julien Hotel & Spa is offering a Green Martini for only $9, not just on Earth Day, but all week long. The cocktail features Hendrix Gin, Yeoman Tonic, cucumber syrup, fresh squeezed lime and cucumber garnish. (900 Walnut St., Boulder; 720-406-9696)

Also in Boulder, Blackbelly Market is serving The Iowan Smash featuring Templeton Rye, fresh-squeezed lemon and blackberries, a refreshing way to spend Earth Day. (1606 Conestoga #3, Boulder; 303-247-1000)

Argyll Whisky Beer is offering the Oh Be Joyful Cocktail, a concoction of locally-sourced ingredients such as Leopold ASB Gin, a squeeze of fresh lime juice and simple syrup. The drink is served with a sunny yellow pepper, jalapeno and beet for a perfect garden cocktail on Argyll’s patio. (1035 E 17th Ave.; 303-847-0850)

In Cherry Creek North, The Cherry Cricket is offering the Organic Grasshopper for Earth Day. It’s made with organic American Harvest Vodka, white cream de cocoa, hazelnut liquor, Rumpleminze, green cream de menthe, half and half and a mint leaf. The earth never tasted so good. (2641 E 2nd Ave.; 303-322-7666)

Humboldt Farm Fish Wine celebrates the bounty of the Earth every day, both on the plate and in the glass. For Earth Day the bar is serving the new Garden Mule. The Mule is made with Pearl Vodka, carrot juice, beet juice, lime juice and ginger beer and served in a copper mug. (1700 Humboldt St.; 303-813-1700)

Tamayo in Larimer Square is offering a tequila flight deal for Earth Day. Sample a Blanco, Reposado and an Anajo tequila for $24. All three tequilas, Uno Dos Tres, Tequila Tierras and Dolce Vida, are organic. (1400 Larimer St.; 720-946-1433)

In Riverfront Park, Zengo will offer a zesty martini called the Cin Nombre for $12. The mélange is made with Dulce Vida Blanco, muddled cucumber, green tea simple syrup and a sugar, paprika and cinnamon rim. Enjoy this all-organic drink on the Zengo’s patio overlooking the park. (1610 Little Raven St.; 720-904-0965)
