The Patterson House Named in Top 10 Best New Cocktail Bars
For some reason everyone around town is soooo excited that Bon Appetit’ magazine just named The Patterson House as one of the Top 10 New Cocktail Bars in the country. Hmmmm. Well who listed them as their #1 pick for “My Year in Drink 2009”? Yeah, that’s right- ME. Seems like someone around here knows what they’re talking about!
Prairie Vodka, Lime, Ginger Syrup
Sounds so simple, right? well, I’ve ordered this drink in 1/2 dozen other bars, and am always disappointed. As much as I love to experiment and try new things, I can’t go into TPH without ordering at least one of these. It’s off the menu now, but if you ask sweetly, I’m sure they’ll make one for you!
Lunazul Reposado, Creme de Cassis, Lemon, Ginger Syrup
Masion Surrenne Cognac, Lemon Lillet Blonde, Orange Flower Water
Juliet & Romeo
Plymouth Gin, Lime, Mint, Cucumber, Rose Water
Pimm’s #1, Tanqueray Gin, Lime, Mint, Cucumber, Strawberry
Corsair Gin, Lemon, House Made Blackberry Cordial
Rebel Yell Bourbon, Lemon, Mint, Peychaud’s Bitters
Bacon Old Fashioned
Benton Bacon Infused 4 Roses Bourbon, Maple Syrup, Coffee Pecan Bitters
Let me warn you- this one should probably be your final drink of the evening because the smokey bacon flavor is going to stay with you for a good long while and most likely overpower anything else you try to drink. Even so, it’s awesome.
Luxardo Espresso Liqueur, Barbancourt 3 Star 4 yr Rhum, Sweetened Heavy Cream, Fees Old Fashioned Bitters
with horseradish dill creme fraiche
Tomato, Mozzarella, Pesto
with curry ketchup
For this one I always ask for the mustard that is no longer on the menu because it is to-die-for!
People, I don’t even like mustard and I love this stuff.
Peach & Proscuitto Flatbread
with blue cheese
Cinnnamon Sugar Doughnuts
If you want to eat these properly,
you really should order a Stingy Brim and dunk them!
I know, I know. It’s a pretty long list, but at least it covers a broad range and is a little something for every taste.
So how about you guys? Have you experienced The Patterson House, and if so, what cocktail(s) do you favor?
