SazeracIn new orleans, they like to do things their own way. Judging by this famous variation on the old-fashioned, that way may be the right way. Sazerac 6yr rye whiskey, the crescent city’s own Peychaud’s bitters, a bit of sugar - & a glass rinsed w/ a green bitter liquid that shall remain nameless.
Bourbon Old FashionedThe oldest cocktail, & still one of the best. Nothing more than a slug of good whiskey on the rocks, w/ a couple of dashes of bitters, a little sugar, & a twist of lemon peel to take the edge off. Sometimes the simplest things work best. We make ours without the “garbage”- the fruit salad w/ which the noble old warhorse is so often weighed down.
Jack RoseThis classic joint reminds us of all that’s taboo in this second oldest of professions. Two of the original forbidden fruits, apple & pomegranate together in one tart, pink, home wrecker of a cocktail. Laird’s bonded applejack, grenadine & a little lemon juice. Pucker up.
The Bobby BurnsGive him strong drink until he wink, that's sinking in despair; an' liquor guide to fire his build, that's prest wi' grief & care; there let him bouse, an' deep carouse, wi' bumpers flowing o'er, till he forgets his loves or debts, an' minds his griefs no more. Scotch whisky, sweet vermouth, benedictine, bitters
The Poop Deck CocktailIt’s hard to resist a cocktail w/ a nautical theme (or scatological reference for that matter). This classic cocktail blends cognac, port wine, & blackberry brandy, making for smooth sailing on stormy seas. Overindulgence, however, could send a wave up over your stern.
The Viexu CarreHey, it gets hot in here, real hot, like, new orleans hot. Accordingly, we have a great reverence for the contributions of the crescent city to cocktail culture. This bracing 1938 nod to the french quarter combines rye whiskey, cognac, sweet vermouth, Angostura & Peychaud bitters, served up & ice cold. Just be careful when leaving the bar as the fog has a way of reminding you where you really are, which may not be such a bad thing after all.
Pisco SourBoth Peru & chile lay claim to this national treasure. Not that we’re taking sides or anything but we like to serve ours “a lo peruano”. Montesierpe pisco w/ lime juice, sugar, & egg white, w/ just a dash of Angostura bitters. Refreshing, delicious, & addicting. Something you might not want to share w/ your neighbor, either. So tell them to order their own.
Blood & SandA classic story of love, desire, & tragic \ death gave this equally classic cocktail its moniker. Scotch whiskey, cherry brandy, sweet vermouth & fresh orange juice served ice cold & up. Aalluring as rita hayworth, but this femme fatale kicks like a bull. tor
THE Vow of SilnceA rubenesque version of the derby cocktail, we use wild turkey rye whiskey, benedictine, creme de griotte, & a dash of bitters. Responsible for breaking more than one vow.
Vice GripSometimes it’s tough to decide which direction to go w/ your cocktail. You don’t have to choose your poison w/ this one: it’s got them all. Araku coffee rum liqueur, brachetto d’aqui, & porter foam. That’s liquor, wine, coffee, & beer all in the same glass. What you do w/ the rest of your night is up to you..
Marrakesh ExpressAround here, we prefer to ride coach class. So we’ve knocked together the perfect little number to pair w/ the ducks & chickens. Flor de cana white rum, maraschino liqueur, iced cardamom green tea & a tiny dash of absinthe served over crushed ice. Now you can relax & just watch it all roll by
Just Like HoneyWhenever it just feels like “one of those days” we might suggest getting down w/ this shoegazing little highball. Scotch whiskey, sloe gin, & a little something dripping from the beehive, topped w/ bitter lemon soda
The Gilded LilyThere are things in life that require little adornment, but we are never ones to shy away from a bit of grandeur. So we’ve decided to bring a touch of sparkle to a dark & cozy barroom. This baroque number mixes Plymouth gin, yellow chartreuse, orange flower water, & sparkling demi-sec & drop in a little flake of gold leaf. Shine on.
Southern ExposureAnother refreshing elixir plucked straight from the garden, our spin on the classic south side uses junipero gin, fresh mint, lime juice, a touch of sugar & a little shot of fresh celery juice. Loaded w/ antioxidants to help deal w/ the haight’s population of free "radicals".
The Promissory NoteIn these economic hard times, everyone needs a little bailout. We’ve concocted a little stimulus package to help you throw caution to the wind. Reposado tequila, dry vermouth, canton ginger liqueur w/ a touch of honey & a dash of absinthe ought to do the trick. Go ahead, put it on your card. But remember, payback is a, well, you know.
Love In VainSomething got you down? maybe it’s time to walk those troubles to the station & send them on down the line. This garnet colored beauty ought to take your mind off it for a spell. Espolon blanco tequila, creme de cacao, meyer family port & hibiscus w/ a dash of orange bitters. Served up & ice cold
Bloody MaryParis barman Pete petiot’s 1924 creation is w/ us today for very good reason: when it’s a bloody mary day, nothing else will do. Ours comes w/ plenty of fresh horseradish & a celery-salted rim. Let us know how hot to go.
Roms Gin FizzIn new orleans, where this sweetheart was born, they shrug when you order one after dark, & say, “it’s really more of a breakfast drink.
Mint JulepDo you have a friend that just knows everything the world is full of know-it-all’s, & they all have a recipe for this classic. Well, as frank Sinatra sang, as well as Sid vicious (who both have julep recipes), we do it our way. We offer to you, humbly, mint, sugar, old Fitzgerald 12 year old bourbon, & brutally crushed ice. Refreshing & relaxing, the perfect repose from whatever race you’ve been running.
Huckleberry HoundsWell, what else would you call it this adorable little troublemaker is built from housemade huckleberry syrup, our own forbidden fruit liqueur, & some bubbles. It’s no scooby snack.
The Perfect StormSome days are rough & you just have to plow through 'em, but hell, it's the weekend. We suggest just waiting it out. This little tempest has Goslings black seal rum, tawny port, & a bit of ale to settle things, w/ a little clove studded lemon splashing about.
Beso AmargoWeekend mornings find many a reveler on a bit of a rebound. To those we offer a tantalizing way to rekindle your palate. This bitter kiss has applejack, campari, & spiced hibiscus agua fresca. xo.
