    I could not possibly be happier with the bartender. Ask for the "bar choice." My cocktail was one of the best I've ever had. Aquavit cocktails are hard, and both that I had were amazing.

    Don't miss the Barbacoa! Three tiny masa cakes topped with braised beef cheek, pickled red onion, cilantro, queso fresco and salsa verde. Delicious! http://bit.ly/19dbsdM

    Barbacoa, fried pickles and the meat plate = divine. Everything else is great too. Best cocktail on the menu is the In A Pickle - it is a great refreshing cocktail!

    Though this fall cocktail currently lacks a name, it starts with an acorn-squash puree, Plantation rum, cayenne pepper, ground cinnamon, and rich maple syrup. Don't miss it! http://bit.ly/1cbOtqe.

    The drink has not yet been named, but try this variation of "Remember the Maine" which combines apple brandy, pear brandy, puntemez, cherry heering, absinthe and orange oil. http://bit.ly/1bEySPD

    Drinks like Hell's Bells offer a spiced gin wonder made with Hayman's Old Tom Gin, Pimm's, a touch of sugar, absinthe and a sizable garnish of smoked red bell pepper. http://bit.ly/150Twlv

    Try "Barrel-Aged Unusual Negroni," which gives a classic cocktail a new twist: With the help of Lillet rosé and Aperol comes a lighter, brighter drink than a conventional negroni. http://bit.ly/ZtLsJz

    Trust me. "Thin Lizzy" is the cocktail you want. Gin, cucumber, jalapeño, etc. works way better than you'd think. Pleases all palates.
