Cocktail List

Jungle Bird
  • Do 1970's Tiki masterpieces technically count as Classic Cocktails yet? With this tropically inspired sipper from the Aviary bar in Kuala Lumpur, we say "Yes!"
  • Mount Gay Eclipse, Cruzan Blackstrap, Campari, Fresh Lime & Pineapple, Cane Sugar. Served on Crushed Ice.

The Top Toddy
  • Our version of this simple classic is sure to thaw you on any chilly Christmas evening.
  • Wild Turkey 101, Ginger, Clover Honey, Fresh Lemon, Cayenne, Cinnamon & Turbinado Syrup, Cider, Clove, Hot Water. Served Warm.
The Ford Cocktail
  • Sophisticated, barely sweet, and a little herbal, it's time to knock the dust off this old drink from 1895. It's not named after Henry Ford, this predecessor to the modern martini is far older than that.
  • The Botanist Gin, Lillet Rose, Benedictine, Rosemary Grapefruit & Peppercorn Bitters. Served Up.
Orange Buck
  • This refreshingly zesty little number is a twist on a Jazz Age Classic.
  • Vodka or Straight Gin, Fresh Orange & Lime, House Ginger Beer. Served on Ice.
Champagne Cocktail
  • A splash of Brandy, some raw sugar, and a whisper of bitters transform your glass of bubbles into something much more festive.
  • Brandy, Raw Sugar, Angostura, Sparkling Wine. Served Up.
The Winchester
  • A real explosion of flavors, sour citrus is impeccably balanced by the sweet florals of the grenadine and elderflower. A modern interpretation of a Gin Zombie, this refreshing tipple is not to be taken lightly.
  • Tanqueray, Death's Door, St. Germain, Fresh Lime & Grapefruit, Ginger Syrup, House Wildflower Tincture, House Grenadine, Angostura Bitters. Served on Ice.
The Billionaire
  • Want to feel like a million bucks, and then some? Feeling luxurious or just want to treat yourself? This is the drink for you! A foundation of aged Small Batch Bourbon is caressed by pomegranate Grenadine spiced with cloves and cardamom. The addition of Absinthe Bitters wakes the palate for one complex cocktail.
  • Baker's 107 Proof Small Batch Bourbon, Fresh Lemon, Spiced Grenadine, House Absinthe Bitters. Served Up.
Gingerbread Old Fashioned
  • We are not typically the kind of folks who like to mix our cookies and whiskey, but the savory flavors of ginger & molasses work out well in this one.
  • Bourbon, Brown Sugar Saturated witrh Gingerbread Spices, Orange Bitters & Orange Peel. Served on Ice.
Chet Baker
  • We know it's hard when you've got something this smooth, cool and easy, but please, don't get addicted. It won't be pretty for either one of us.
  • Flor de Cana Aged Rum, Punt e Mes, Honey, Aromatic Bitters. Served on Ice.
Tomorrow Becomes Today
  • This delicious high octane version of a margarita goes down so easily that your days may just meld together.
  • Espolon Reposado, Del Maguey Mezcal, Creme de Cassis, Harlequin Orange, Tamarind Syrup, Ginger, Fresh Lemon & Lime. Served on Ice.
Unusual Negroni
  • It's not unusual in a strange way, or in a silent way, or in an especially bitter way. It's unusual in just the best ways.
  • Hendricks Gin, Aperol, Lillet Blanc. Served Up.
