Our cocktails are carefully designed and crafted to provide unique and refreshing tastes. We put our own twists on classic treats, so that when you take a sip, you’re enjoying a uniquely Sam’s flavor. If you’re looking for the best cocktail bar in Seattle, then you’ll find it at Sam’s Tavern.
House vodka blended with ginger beer – $6
Ginger is great for the body, and ginger beer has ginger in it, so a Moscow Mule should be too, right? This drink is simple in design, but it packs a lot of flavor that’s easy on the stomach. This drink was born in New York City, and though its popularity and growth stalled for a few years on the West Coast, it soon regained traction and has become a popular option.
Gin & Juice
Gin, St. Germain & Aperol with a splash of grapefruit – $6
Forget the juice boxes of your youth and enjoy some Gin and Juice. Grapefruit juice is delicious, and a little gin brings it up to the next level. The slightly bitter taste is a refreshing addition to any meal, allowing you to enjoy a variety of flavors during your night.
Bourbon, bitters and sweet vermouth spiked with a Sinfire infused cherry – $6
This classic American drink takes a slight twist with its addition of Sinfire-infused cherry. This drink was born in New York City (like so many others) in the early 1870s, and though it has had some alterations and niche changes between bars and bartenders, it’s still one of the alltime favorite drinks in the U.S. of A.
Pickle Back Jack
1 shot of Jameson + 1 shot of house pickle juice brine – $7.50
Pickles are a bar favorite treat, so we’ve taken the pickle juice brine and turned it into a flavorful combination with a shot of Jameson. Though this is a relatively new drink as far as recognition goes, it’s still a widespread favorite.
Sinfire, 151 rum, and a few dashes of Tabasco – $6
For those who love a little spice in their lives, drink our Hot Shot which uses Tabasco, Sinfire, and 151 Rum to really pack a punch in every glass. This unique drink is a Sam’s favorite, and a Seattle favorite, thanks to the extra bit of flavor that this combination brings to life.
Shot of 1776 rye whiskey and a Rainier beer in a glass – $7
Beer and whiskey, together again. A simple but delicious combination that will tickle your throat on the way down. This is a traditional drink that’s best had by doing the shot first, then sipping the beer afterwards.
Our Bloody Mary is a famous drink that’s been declared one of the best in Seattle, and has been considered amongst the best in the country.
It comes with a number of tasty snacks, including a slider (which can be beef, chicken, or veggie), celery stalk, cheese, olive, lime wedge, and more. This delicious hangover-cure is one of our proudest creations. Though its history is as murky as the contents of the drink, there’s no question as to how good it tastes.

Long Islands are a classic cool drink that’s fantastically refreshing. There are two different versions of its origin story, but either way, this is a fan-favorite that hits a little harder than your average ice tea.
Jack Daniel’s Honey Whiskey & Coke
Jack and Coke is a well-loved combo across the globe. This classic pair is a favorite for large groups, and has seen numerous drinking games designed around it.
Shot of R&R with a beer back
Backs are back, and ours is a punch of flavor with a shot of R&R. Backs were once a popular style of drink, and though they had a lull in their popularity, they’ve begun to take hold of America once again.
Shot of Sinfire
Sinfire is a favorite of ours, and we’re happy to share a shot with you. This drink may hit you hard, but you’ll probably be able to come back for more.
Well gin or vodka martinis
Enjoy a down-to-earth well gin or vodka martini. It’s hard to detract from the enjoyment that these drinks bring, so feel free to relax and have some laughs with your buddies while you’re downing these Friday favorites.
