An evening of cocktail tasting, complemented by small bites, has been implemented by New York Michelin star restaurant, Aquavit.
The multi-course sampling is a patio cocktail experience for 90 minutes, consisting of two of six new hand-crafted beverages.
The menu was developed with each bartender in consideration, so each drink embodies a different personality. To enjoy the light and refreshing drinks, Aquavit has it retailed for $125 a guest.
For their tequila fans, the Tre is made with Lillet, Dolin dry and Cocchi Americano and Melon with tequila, watermelon, basil, and lemon. Their tropical flavor cocktail is the Alota, made with Pyrat XO reserve, Smith & Cross, toasted coconut syrup, pineapple juice, lime juice, and almond bitters.
Aquavit offers the Southeast, which is a blend of rum with tamarind, Banane Du Bresil, lime, and a hint of salt. The tasting will end with the Dimlet, a dill-flavored gimlet with gin, cucumber, and chanteuse, and the Newskool, a bourbon drink with orange liquor, brandy and Benedictine.
The tasting will be presented with small snacks like half-dozen oysters in an elderflower mignonette and artisanal cheese including fresh fruit, jam, and seeded crackers. Tarte Flambee with sausage, mustard crème Fraiche and pickled onions is also served.
