Hey Bartender
Galletto Ristorante

in Modesto is not only a good place to seize a tasty meal with their farm-to-table Chef Michael Goularte, but they also have a lavish lounge and bar area for a joyous and extra happy happy hour.

The new drink menu is available with a variety of craft-made cocktails by veteran bartender Sandra Ruckteschler, who has over 10 years’ experience serving guests at Galletto. With freshly made mixers and the finest ingredients, she has created two cocktails just in time for the end of summer and the beginning of fall, the Spicy Passion Mango Martini and A Better Manhattan.

A Better Manhattan may delight the taste buds, which is comprised with Templeton Rye, Antica Formula, and a dash of walnut bitters garnished with Luxardo the original maraschino cherries on a skewer.

The Spicy Passion Mango Martini consists of the New Amsterdam Mango Vodka, fresh passion fruit puree, fresh lemon, a splash of simple syrup and a dash of cayenne pepper topped with a sparkling Wycliff Brut.

Galletto’s Happy Hour is from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday with specials on beer, wine and spirits, as well as half price pizzas and the small bites offered in the Chef’s Daily special. Galletto Ristorante is located at 1101 J St. in Modesto.
