MILESTONE MILESTONE RESTAURANT EL DORADO HILLS
s the Bliss Babe Team expands into El Dorado Hills, we were excited to find our first treasure, Milestone Restaurant. Owners Alexa Hazelton and Nick Dedier, along with their staff, take pride in their work, their food, and your dining experience. “Give guests the best opportunity to have the best time they can have,” is Alexa’s expectation for everyone who chooses to dine with them. We started our evening at the bar to take in the ambiance of the restaurant. Presented with an extensive list of cocktails, spirits, beer, and wine, we welcomed the suggestions to try Milestone’s Gin and Tonic. This signature drink was recommended by other guests and our bartender Aaron. It starts with a house made tonic that includes 19 different ingredients: lime, tops of a pineapple, and blueberry, to name a few. No syrup added, just a touch of raw sugar. The tonic mixture goes through a four hour boiling process, then is strained to create a pinky-purple tonic that’s topped with Leopold Brothers Blood Orange Summer Gin. The drink is served in a wine glass for an elegant touch while a slice of grapefruit and lime grace the rim and a long stem of rosemary adds the final touch. When we first looked through the list of adult beverage options, Aaron joked the list was complete with “all your wildest dreams,” and it’s true. With 13 bourbons to choose from, 12 beers on tap, mixed drinks, and a variety of wine, including 38 reds from our local region, Napa, and other countries, there is a drink for everyone. And even though Milestone would love to share their drink selection with you, they do allow you to bring your own bottle of wine with a corkage fee. Easy conversation with the bartenders makes the bar a perfect place to wind down or it can be the fabulous beginning to a fulfilling evening, not just dinner.
