Edgar's Grille Shares the Recipe for our Maritime Martini Favorite
The mere thought of key lime pie likely transports your senses to a tropical paradise. As we move into the winter month's having a little slice, or glass, of the tropics can be just the thing to quench our thirst for warmer days and sunny skies. Key lime pie is among one of the top pies to serve at Thanksgiving so it is no surprise that our key lime martini is among the most requested cocktails here at Edgar's.
The history and love for this delectable dessert run deep and spans over a century. Rumor has it that the key lime pie originated in Key West, Fla, toward the end of the 1800's. Foodie folklore claims the cook to prominent Key West and Bahamian-born resident William Curry invented the recipe. Curry became the first millionaire in the Florida Keys and his cook adoringly referred to as "Aunt Sally", concocted the first pie from key limes.
This maritime flavor favorite can be enjoyed among many genres of food and drink, including one of Edgar's Grille's favorite martinis -- the Key Lime Pie martini! Stop into Edgar's today and enjoy our key lime martini in our relaxing courtyard!

First Pint Pour Marks the Beginning of a New Era
After much anticipation, Goodwill Industries of Middle Georgia and the CSRA along with Macon Beer Company and Riverwatch Brewery held the First Pint Pour event this past Friday. In the weeks leading up to the event, raffle tickets were sold for the opportunity to buy the first pint of beer once the new laws go into effect on September1st.
Two lucky winners were drawn from the raffle, one in Macon and one in Augusta. In addition to having the honor of purchasing the first pint the winners also received a Chef's dinner for eight at Edgar's Grille and Edgar's Bistro. All proceeds from the event benefit Goodwill's job training and placement programs.
The event was created to celebrate and commemorate the passing of new beer laws in Georgia. For many years, Georgia breweries were only able to provide samples of beer as part of their facility tours. The new law that went into effect 9/01 changes that. Georgia breweries are now able to sell their beer at their facilities for not only on-premise consumption, but visitors can now purchase some to take home --288 ounces any given day to be exact! The new law loosens regulations that required the state’s breweries and distilleries to distribute their products through wholesalers. Middle Georgia and the CSRA has become a thriving food.
This is good news for local breweries like Macon Beer Company and Riverwatch, creating a better experience for brewery guests because visitors who like their brew can now take a little piece of Georgia home with them!
Middle Georgia and the CSRA has become a thriving food destination. Our leaders are committed to ensuring Georgia remains a great state for local breweries to prosper and this new law will help local economies benefit from the industry’s steady growth.
