Fellow drinking buddy, Priti has a great idea, let's check out Drink for drinks, cocktails to be precise.
Drink doesn't have a beverage menu because bartenders craft cocktails based on your tastes. You say what kind of liquor you like such as dark, light, strong or weak as well as the flavors you like such as sour, savory, fruity, chocolaty, tropical, coffee or minty. You may be asked a few additional questions and are also free to add more detail. You will receive a delicious concoction, however, if after a sip or two, you don't like it, no worries, try again...their aim is to satisfy. Let me also add they're serious about their ice because it effects your beverage enjoyment.
Recently, I stopped in for a few minutes, asked for something spicy and refreshing and was served a Ginger Breeze that satisfied my craving. They offer fresh herbs as well as homemade ginger beer, which will turn an ordinary mixed drink into an extraordinary cocktail.
You are presented an appetizer menu which lists mainly sandwiches and fries. I enjoyed a very delicious Cuban sandwich which was a great complement to my Ginger Breeze.
Drink is in the basement of an old underground art gallery, has three square, minimalist bars, which means the liquor is stored out of sight.
Before you go to or come from home, the gym, work, dinner, or wherever, meet up with a few drinking buddies for a minute or two or three or four or more...however long you're able. I'll stick around for 120 minutes. So don't be shy, say hi.
