BY Shannon Asher | August 1, 2016 | Feature Features

Things come and go in this town but Jimmy's never does. Located in the downtown core of Aspen with surrounding panoramic mountain views, Jimmy's American Restaurant and Bar is a longtime locals' favorite, featuring an award-winning selection of tequilas and mezcals. There are a few staples in town that have become local hangouts, and Jimmy's is one of them. Serving what Jimmy calls "Fierce American Food," you can rely on the finest steaks, seafood and comfort food anywhere. Boasting a spirited and fun ambience, Jimmy's is all about experiencing the exceptional without pretense. It's what brings loyal followers back time and time again.

1. Leo’s Sherry Cobbler
Summer in Aspen is a bit of a balancing act. While guests would like to spend the night sipping cocktails on the patio, they also want to rise early and seize the day. The Sherry Cobbler won’t let you down. Based on fresh, tangy and dry Manzanilla Sherry and fresh seasonal berries, it's refreshing and low ABV.

2. Alain Chavy Puligny-Montrachet
This classic white burgundy is made for long summer nights on Jimmy’s patio. Chavy is an amazing small family producer; his wines start with texture and richness and finish with beautiful tension and brightness.

3. Dufftown Maid
Inspired by the Jimmy's staff trip to Scotland and Ireland in the spring of 2016, this cocktail shows a versatile side of Scotch whisky and is made with Monkey Shoulder Scotch. Super refreshing, this cocktail features grapefruit, cucumber and pomegranate, served over Jimmy's signature BFIC.

4. California Pinot Noir
Fans of Williams Seylem, Kosta Browne and Sea Smoke will have plenty of wines to pique their interest. Jimmy's boasts the best fans of Failla, whose wines share some of the regal nature of those producers yet have quite a bit of daily drinking value.

5. The Jimmy’s Wine Challenge
Blind taste a wine and match it to the correct selection on the card to get the glass for free! This challenge is a fun way to try new wine, hone your tasting skills and get an amazing glass at a great value. Ask your sommelier for Burgundy and you’ll have many stellar options between Premier Cru and Grand Cru.
