with Jasmine tea and apple to make for an easy, thirst-quenching summer drink. For something short and sweet, the Rosie Pink Sheet ($118) muddles muscat grapes with rose syrup, adds roseinfused vodka and tops it off with extra chopped grapes. Something tougher float your boat?
Try the Golden Cross ($118) which uses Bulleit bourbon, Courvoisier V.S.O.P, maple syrup, and is served with a little cup of roasted coffee beans you can add in for extra aroma: rounding out the strong kick of bourbon and cognac with a second wave of savory smoke from the beans.
You can line your stomach with a range of bar snacks like a grilled rib-eye with chimichurri ($158), and of course, the ubiquitous lobster roll ($118 for two small rolls). You’ll need it: the best draw here is the Penny Stock promotion, every Monday to Wednesday 5-7pm, during which select drinks are just $10. Weeknight drinkers beware: If we learned anything from “The Wolf of Wall Street,” it’s that dealing in penny stocks often leads to a dramatic crash. To prevent a quaalude-scene re-enactment on your morning commute, you might want to cap it at just one… or three (and decline any pills).
