SAZERAC |1873, THOMAS H. HANDY, NEW ORLEANS|$9
This is my personal favorite. One of the originals coming from New Orleans with a rye whiskey base, a lil’ absinthe and simple syrup. Tradition calls for a lemon zest, though, I prefer orange—your choice. Nice and boozy.
AVIATION COCKTAIL |1911, HUGO ENSSLIN, NEW YORK|$12
Here we have a nice gin cocktail with maraschino cherry liqueur and a lil’ citrus that stand firm in a classic that all genders enjoy.
PEGU CLUB COCKTAIL |1920’S, UNKNOWN, BURMA|$10
A simple gin classic with orange liqueur, fresh lime juice and finished off with Angostura and orange bitters.
SIDECAR |1948, DAVID EMBURY, NEW ORLEANS|$9
Noted to have been created after the First World War, this libation has seen a couple variations since. Cognac, orange liqueur, fresh lemon juice and garnished with a sugar rim create a perfect balance of boozy yet refreshing.
PIMM’S CUP |1840s, JAMES PIMM, LONDON|$7
I have seen a few different recipes for the Pimm’s Cup. This is one of the most popular classics across the board that we make here. Pimm’s #1, fresh lemon juice and house-made ginger beer makes the difference in this one.
WARD 8 |1898, TOM HUSSION, BOSTON|$7
This refreshing old timer out of Massachusetts involves rye whiskey, grenadine, fresh lemon and orange juice then topped with soda.
VIEUX CARRE |1938, WALTER BERGERON, NEW ORLEANS|$12
Had this one when we first opened...we’ve missed you! This is a marriage between the classic Sazerac and Manhattan with a lil’ bit of Benedictine.
OLD FASHIONED |1880s, JAMES E. PEPPER, LOUISVILLE|$10
Have to have this classic on the menu. Your choice of either pre or post prohibition style with rye whiskey or bourbon; muddled fruit or citrus peel. Up to you...enjoy!
CORPSE REVIVER #2 |1930, HARRY CRADDOCK, NEW YORK|$10
This cocktail is the most approachable of all of the classics. With gin, orange liqueur, fresh lemon juice, Cocchi Americano and absinthe. It’s an easy flavorful favorite.
AIR MAIL |1949, UNKNOWN, HAVANA|$10
Here we have a riff on the classic French 75. Rum, honey and fresh lime juice are combined then topped off with bubbly. Hooray for bubbles!
WITHOUT A TRACE$10
This one is served on a large ice cube with an absinthe rinse. A bit of bourbon...well, a lot of bourbon, along with Amaro Nonino, honey and fresh lemon juice...delicious!
This old style libation has Applejack brandy, Cruzan Black Strap rum, Benedictine, orange liqueur and Peychaud’s bitters. It’s a big, boozy cocktail with a touch of sweetness.
BLUE GRASS FIZZ$8
Bourbon, honey, ginger, fresh lemon juice and topped with soda…Great summer, or any, time libation. Gotta love the South!
RIGHTEOUS |2016, COREY FARMER|$10
This is an amazing award-winning libation with a great, boozy balance. Redemption rye, Cocchi Americano, hibiscus liqueur, ginger syrup, fresh lemon juice and zested with a flamed orange peel.
DAISEY IF YOU DO$14
A heavy, bourbon-based libation with Benedictine, Amaro Nonino, honey, fresh grapefruit juice, bitters and nutmeg. Very boozy and complex.
A combination of refreshing, sweet and boozy. Bonded bourbon along with Aperol, a touch of orgeat, fresh grapefruit and lemon juice.
Named after my great uncle, who was a bootlegger. He was never caught, so you get the picture...Lavender infused bourbon with peach and elderflower liqueurs.
Happy would love this bourbon and Irish whiskey combo with Maraschino, house ginger, fresh lemon juice and peach bitters.
This one is along the lines of a boozy classic cocktail with a generous pour of rye, Irish whiskey, Peychauds liqueur, orgeat, absinthe and zested with a flamed orange.
FRENCH AVENUE | 2019, COREY FARMER|$9
This libation is on the lighter side of things with Cognac, Lustau sherry, elderflower liqueur, fresh lemon juice, muddled blueberries, orange flower water and topped with bubbles.
Starting off with a heavy dose of Dominican rum then combined with Cynar, peach liqueur, Peychauds bitters and rinsed with absinthe.
This is quite a deceptive cocktail: it’s loaded with alcohol goodness that is hard to detect. A gin base with elderflower, pear and citrus mixture, the combination may keep you from ordering anything else.
THE Q CUM COCKTAIL$8
My version of the spicy cucumber with a ginger twist. The spirit has a dill and serrano infusion accompanied by fresh lime and cucumber juices.
MATCHA DO ABOUT NOTHING | 2019, BEN CARDENAS |$8
Gin pairs perfectly with our house-made matcha tea syrup along with peach liqueur, ginger syrup and fresh lemon juice.
This is a simple and delicious addition to our menu. Gin, hibiscus liqueur, fresh lime juice and house ginger syrup.
This is nice, refreshing, and lil’ spicy with a gin infused with dill and serrano. Add some fresh lime juice, ginger and lingonberry, and you are ready to go.
This is the one that will open you up to whiskey libations. Very well-rounded with our house-infused sweet potato and cinnamon Irish whiskey, ginger and white Lillet.
THE POSTAL SERVICE$12
Special delivery! Here we have a simple riff on a Havana classic. Zaya rum, Green Chartreuse, honey and fresh lime juice. Then topped with bubbly!
This is the cocktail that started it all. No more vodka; bring on the gin. With fresh raspberries, simple and orange liqueur, this is absolutely pleasing. But, be careful: it is still a bit boozy.
This is a cilantro-infused gin (so tasty) with fresh cucumber juice, honey, lemon and one other goody. It’s delicious!
Here we have a wonderful summer cocktail with gin, peach liqueur, crème de mûre, ginger syrup and fresh lime juice.
This is an amazing variation of the margarita. We infuse reposado tequila with several peppers and serve with honey, fresh lime juice and a lil’ of something else. Top it off with a smoked sea salt rim, and you have one of the better cocktails out there.
