Cocktail List

Top Buttered Rum
  • We are bringing this ultimate winter warmer to life, and directly into your chilly hands!
  • 4 Yr Aged Rum, House Winter Spiced Batter, Hot Water. Served Warm.
Remember the Maine
  • From The Gentlemen's Companion, a 1939 book that stands out simply because of this delicious drink.
  • Russell's Reserve 6 Yr Rye, Carpano Antica, Cherry Heering, Absinthe Rinse. Served Up.
Pegu Club Cocktail
  • If you traveled outside of Rangoon Burma in the 1920's, not only did you probably have a cool mustache and a bitchin' military jacket, you probably had one of these tart classics in hand.
  • Bombay Dry Gin, Orange Curaçao, Fresh Lime, Angostura Bitters. Served Up.
Algonquin Cocktail
  • Named for a historic hotel in Manhattan, it's an unlikely combination of flavors that turn out a little bit classy and a little bit wild.
  • Rye Whiskey, Dry Vermouth, Fresh Pineapple. House Orange Bitters. Served Up.
The Perfect Rob Roy
  • Created in 1894 by a bartender at the Waldorf Astoria New York, it's often considered to be just a Scotch Manhattan, but this classic sipper is a house favorite.
  • Glenlivet 12Yr Single Malt, Delicate Sweet & Extra Dry Vermouths, Woodford Barrel Aged Whiskey Bitters. House Brandied Cherry. Served Up.
De Rigueur
  • It's first appearance in Judge Jr.'s 1927 guide 'Here's How' came with these words of wisdom, "Hark ye lads! Here's the very latest drink! Three of these will knock you for a row of aspirins!"
  • Bernheim 7Yr Bourbon, Fresh Grapefruit, Clover Honey Syrup. Served on Ice.
One Flight Up The Monk
  • All 25 of those stairs are steep, and not to be trifled with, especially after a few of these.
  • Pisco, Campari, Cynar, Cocchi Americano, Fresh Lemon, Cane Sugar, Angostura, Egg White, Carbonation. Served on Ice.
La Vie En Rosemary
  • The perfect frothy mix for a view of life through rose colored glasses, there's nothing you can't love about this herbal & citrus based fizz.
  • Straight Gin, House Orange Cordial, Sugar Saturated with Rosemary, Rose & Orange Blossom Water, Fresh Lemon, Cream, Egg White. Served Up.
Tequila Moon Rise
  • Do you remember that beautiful night you spent under the stars in Cozumel? Probably not. This cocktail may serve as a reminder, or just serve you a pretend get a-way for the evening.
  • Blanco Tequila, Luxardo Maraschino, Creme de Violette, Citrus Mélange, Cane Sugar. Served Up.
The Black Mariah
  • A much darker kind of lady, this slightly sweet, slightly tart, and very potent libation is anything but scary.
  • Maker's Mark, Chambord, Blackberry Brandy, Lemon Saturated Syrup, Cured Blackberry & Pomegranate Shrub. Served on Ice.
Naked & Famous
  • No shy wallflower, this drink brings bittersweet oranges to the table, with notes of saffron, honey, and spice, both of which play controversially with the smokiness of the mezcal.
  • Del Maguey Vida Mezcal, Aperol, Yellow Chartreuse, Fresh Lime. Served up.
Everything Stays
  • Sometimes the best things in life happen when everything stays the same, simply and exactly where you left it.
  • White Rum, Vinho Verde, Green Tea Syrup, Fresh Lime, Celery Bitters. Served on Ice.
