Cocktail Menu: Lorelei in Warsaw, Poland

I received and email from Karol of the bar Lorelei in Warsaw, who says s/he's been reading Alcademics and making clear ice at the bar. 

Karol shared the menu, which is below. Smoked syrup, Angostura-caramelized raisins, fig-infused rum: This looks far more sophisticated than anywhere I visited last year. A good reason to come back...
