BAC­ARDI 8 BOULEVARDIER

Think of this as the Ne­groni’s se­duc­tive and mys­te­ri­ous older sis­ter. Made with Cam­pari, ver­mouth and Bac­ardi 8 in­stead of the usual whisky in a Boulevardier, this rich cock­tail also has a strong aroma of cof­fee as the bar­rel is pre­con­di­tioned with beans be­fore the spir­its are added.

OLD FASH­IONED NUT CASE

Old is liq­uid gold with this sim­ple but re­fined twist on the clas­sic Old Fash­ioned. Blend­ing Mon­key Shoul­der Whisky with hazelnut liqueur and or­ange bit­ters, this best­seller flies off the shelf so if you’re lucky enough to visit while it’s in stock, make sure to steal a sip or two.

EL PRES­I­DENTE

Bar­rel-aged cock­tails don’t have to be heavy on the palate, some like the El Pres­i­dente zingy and re­fresh­ing. Crafted with Cap­i­tal’s home­made grena­dine, the cit­rusy drink has a mild fruity fin­ish from the Mar­tini Bianco Ver­mouth.
