Maker: Todd Thrasher
True to the slogan, “Virginia is for Lovers,” Todd Thrasher, a native Virginian, is a lover of many things—scuba diving, the island of Bonaire, playing golf and cooking. Most importantly however, is his love for the creation of the perfect artisan cocktail and his knowledge of wine. Todd came to Alexandria’s Restaurant Eve when it opened 10 years ago with a distinguished vintage palate, a keen eye for the freshest ingredients and the flavors they impart, and a deep love of the hospitality industry.
Thrasher is also a partner in Eamonn’s A Dublin Chipper, the speakeasy lounge upstairs, PX and Society Fair, all located in Old Town Alexandria. At PX, named for VIP patrons of Eve, Thrasher executes “bar magic” to guests with whimsical cocktails.
"I Am Virginia" Old Fashioned
Todd Thrasher’s riff on the Old Fashioned plays homage to his home state with the Virginia figs and local rye. Kick back with this stirred up classic.
