To say that the cocktails at Angeline, the newest addition to Borgata’s all-star culinary collection, are special is an understatement. The drinks at Michael Symon’s ode to classic Italian cuisine are complex, innovative, and, most importantly, super fun, all because of the expert mixologist who created the libations.
Symon’s long time cocktail collaborator, Dr. David Earle (an Associate Professor in the Department of English at the University of West Florida, of all things), has created a series of memorable drinks that pair excellently with the restaurant’s classic menu, or serve as a refreshing start to an evening at Borgata while sitting at Angeline’s exquisite marble bar, designed by Parts and Labor Design and Symon’s wife, Liz. Each cocktail tells a unique story and uses the finest ingredients to create drinks unlike anything that Borgata has seen. Explore the cocktail list below, and make sure to try one of the signature libations the next time you visit.
