    You haven't had a true beer cocktail if you haven't had one made by Brady Wiese!

    It's good that Marcos Tello is still consulting here. There are aged cocktails, spirits served neat and some spectacular presentations. Consider the BBC, a basil-infused collins.

    Marcos Tello and Aidan Demarest have created an outstanding cocktail list, including the excellent Honey Nut Old Fashioned and the Staten Island.

    For an uber Sazerac ask for the off menu Ursulines with Cafe during Monde infused rye, demerara sugar and Creole bitters. Amazing.

    FYI: They went to the Buffalo Trace distillery and made their own 1886 batch.

    Apparently the Honey Nut Old Fashioned is the most popular cocktail. It's made with the peanut infused bourbon.

    Marcos & his team create and make beautiful cocktails. This Spring try the Crushed Strawberry Fizz, Ursulines Breakfast or Southern Belle.

    Outside the craftsman house there's a stone-hewn fireplace you can perch next to while you sip. Their seasonal cocktails are always worth a try Read more
