West Village gem, Wallflower, is mixing up a new cocktail, Cafe Mendoza.

It is a delicious, creamy winter drink developed by head bartender, James Lombardino. It has deep flavors of plum and raisin from the brandy and is rounded out nicely with hints of coffee – the perfect cocktail to sip your cold weather sorrows away. Mix one up for yourself.
