The new casual sister restaurant to Quince, Cotogna, has a drink menu designed by Lead Bartender "Buffalo" Jason LoGrasso.
I stopped in for a few drinks.
Then I moved on to the Viceroy (Reposado, Gentian, Pineapple, Lemon, Chilli) that was garnished with a slice of radish. It was more acidic and lively than it sounds (was the pineapple gum fermenting? Because if so I like it that way...) and my favorite drink of the night.
I had a non-alcoholic Negroni as a break between drinks- a great adult soda.
Then I finished off with a drink not on the menu I was sent with cachaca, condensed milk, and absinthe (pictured). It was earthy and rich/desserty without being too sweet.
Good stuff from Buffalo.
