Because I'm a nerd, I enjoy tracking the various ways cocktail menus are organized. Some throw a bunch of different drinks together, some organize them into drink categories, and others stick to one theme throughout.
A venue in New York, Allen & Delancey, is doing something really new. For each drink concept, there are two executions:
Some examples from the menu include:
(Grain, Oak, and Revolution)
1 Bourbon, amaro, lemon, honeyed ginger syrup
2 Rye, amaro, sherry, elderflower, Bénédictine, aromatic bitters
(Agave, Pacific Winds, and the Jimadors)
1 Blanco tequila, Acacia honey, lime, Angostura bitters, rinse Luxardo bitter
2 Reposado tequila, antica, green chartreuse, orange bitters, rinse Campari, orange twist
And the drinks look pretty darn delicious as well! Read more examples on New York Magazine's website.
