Cana: A Bitters Craving

From what I understand, Cana’s new menu dropped last week which means this post about the last menu is a bit late. But I am still craving the Arms Race which features 9 different kinds of bitters. I hope they kept this one of the list though they can probably make it again as it’s […]
