I seriously thought about keeping this gem to myself a little while longer, but because I like you all so much, I’m spilling the beans. Heck, I enjoyed myself so thoroughly there a couple of weeks ago that I should be shouting it from the rooftops!
Months ago, when my pal Chris alerted me that Nashville would soon be getting what sounded like a very cool new bar, I was hopeful. The sweet backstory of the owners and how it came to be (you MUST read this!) made me look forward to the opening day even more. With cocktails reminiscent of a couple of my other favorite libation lounges in town, I could easily spend hours hanging there, working my way through the menu. Truth be told, I’ve already tried to put a bit of a dent in it…..
Mickey Finn – gin, cardamom, grapefruit, maple syrup
(can’t imagine going there and not ordering at least one of these! so good)
French 75- cava, gin, lemon, sugar, bitters
Suffering Bastard- gin, whiskey, ginger, orange, bitters
Pisco Sour- pisco, lemon, egg whites, sugar
Divanzo – tequila, cucumber, serrano chile
Monster Kazoo- whiskey, sherry, pineapple, walnut
The “Leap of Faith”
1- you choose the spirit
2- you choose fresh juice or spirited version
3- Leave the rest to them
Resulting in a delightful, surprising concoction!
