Cocktails

enjoy some of the classics, or try one of our exciting signature cocktails.

the classics

Bellini
Created in the 1930s by Giuseppe Cipriani, the founder of Harry’s Bar in Venice, Italy. A refreshing mixture of Prosecco and white peach puree.

Mimosa
Originated at the Ritz Hotel in Paris around 1925. One part champagne and one part chilled orange juice; its simplicity has allowed it to remain a classic.

Old Fashioned
First seen in the 1880s, the Old Fashioned was originally served at the Pendennis Club in Louisville, Kentucky. Made of Bourbon, bitters, sugar cube & soda water, it is possibly the first drink to be called a “cocktail.”

Sazerac
Dating back to pre-Civil War New Orleans, it may be the first cocktail invented in America. The modern version is rye whiskey, bitters, simple syrup and absinthe and the original is only known as a “deep, dark secret.”

Moscow Mule
A popular drink made of vodka, ginger beer and lime. The name refers to the popular notion of vodka being a Russian product, and the flavor “kick” of the ginger beer. Invented on Sunset Blvd at the Cock ‘n Bull Tavern in the 1950s, this cocktail is credited with switching America’s preference from Gin to Vodka.  We serve it up just like the original- in an authentic copper cup.

Aviation
A classic cocktail made with gin, Maraschino liqueur and lemon juice. The Aviation was created at the Hotel Wallick in Times Square around 1900. Original variations with Crème de Violette gave the drink a sky blue tint.

Hemingway Daiquiri
You know the author, but did you know the Daiquiri is named after a beach near Santiago, Cuba? This variation was his favorite; white rum, lime juice, grapefruit, Maraschino liqueur and cane sugar.

Mojito
White rum, lime juice, sugar, mint leaf, sparkling water & bitters originated as a cocktail in Cuba and yet another favorite of Ernest Hemingway at La Bodeguita del Medio in Cuba. You can still read where he wrote: “Mi mojito en la Bodeguita” on the wall of the bar.
