Went to a bar on recommendation of my favorite bartender. Turned out to be a super nerdy bar. Really enjoyed my time here
Four kinds of martinis, three kinds of manhattans, three kinds of sazeracs. Everything the dude did and said was like music to my ears. Proper use of terminology (or at least great deal of thought into it)
Favorite was a Ramos gin fizz. It was quite fun. Basically my table of friends had to pass the Boston shaker around and we made the drink together. Tasted like an orange creamsicle. Had a bunch of other things like the scofflaw and brandy crusta. They also did an interesting take on the negroni. Flamed an orange slice and use that as a garnish.
Everything was balanced. Ice is all clear and hand carved. They could use better glasses but the bartenders palate was so on point. Was very impressed. He was also extremely knowledgeable. Also very impressive. Learned so much.
