Happy Saturday!

It’s the weekend again and that means it’s time for a drink! This one comes from the bar at the new Cooper Union Hotel on Bowery. It’s called the Honey Bloke.

They use Plymouth Gin, honey, lime juice and peach bitters to make this cocktail and I have to say it was pretty fantastic. It was slightly sweet from the honey but had a tart bite to the end from the peach bitters.

Mr. T’s sister got the best cocktail of the night- the Basil 8. They combined vodka, white grapes, basil lime juice and ginger ale together to make quite the complex cocktail. There were so many different flavor layers to this drink it turned out to taste almost savory, like a full Italian meal.

These drinks don’t come cheap but it was a nice place to stop into and rest for a bit. Happy Saturday!
