Recently Bar | Kitchen updated its cocktail and food menus. I tried a couple of the new ones with plans to return to check out the rest of the list. On this night, I started with the Cherimoya (pisco, white monkey tea, lemon). It’s a great opening cocktail and I would order this over and over again.
Next, I tasted the Pardon (bourbon, Pimm’s #1, curacao, cucumber, orange oil). For those expecting something lighter along the lines of a Pimm’s cup might be surprised by this drink. Being a whiskey fan, I was all about it.
I’m looking forward to trying the following:
Commissioner’s Row– Tennessee whiskey, rhubarb amaro, black strap rum, anisette, pineapple, lime bitters
Gully H. Cobbler – sherry, Gentian liqueur, lemon, cinnamon, peaches
The rest of the menu has many summer libations created with sparkling wine, vermouths and tropical juices. Find me drinking a Cox Comb (reposado tequila, Cocchi Americano, Aperol, grapefruit) soon.
