When my eyes hit the blackboard I knew I was in luck. Filled with cocktails, my favourite test drink jumped out at me. The Parke Davis Sazerac was not only based on my preferred Cognac but was innovative and exciting with the absinthe contained in an ice sphere. Because of this, the Sazerac Sphere ($19) metamorphises as you drink it, as the ice melts the absinthe into the Cognac and Christmas pudding spice. For more of the green fairy I mellowed in the apple Star Bright ($19). Other signatures of the infused rum El Capitan ($18) and foamed Colada ($18) all hit the spot – as does the cosy L-shaped basement, the scrumptious food like Bonito is Beautiful or Dr. Yunus Chicken Skewers, and the vivacious staff. If you’ve had a bad day, you might even get a hug.
