Cocktail Menu: BarMini by Jose Andres

Jose Andres, most notable in my world for The Bazaar by Jose Andres with its liquid nitrogen caipirinhas, has opened a new cocktail den in Washington, DC, fronted by Juan Coronado. The space is an extension of MiniBar next door. 


The cocktail program at barmini will be spearheaded by ThinkFoodGroup’s Cocktail Innovator, Juan Coronado, in collaboration with Research & Development Director, Ruben Garcia.  Juan has worked closely with José and his chefs to craft a seasonally rotating cocktail list, classified by spirit, that’s as extensive (100 cocktails total) and thoughtful as the menu at minibar. Contemporary approaches and techniques, such as “airs,” which capture aromas and flavors in their bubbles, unveiling a beautiful and spontaneous burst of flavor into the cocktail; emulsifiers, such as whey, that add texture and bring a new dimension to the cocktail; barrel aging; carbonation; espumas; extractions and infusions, will be applied to modern and vintage classic libations, including the Rusty Nail, Mai Tai, Whiskey Sour and Margarita.  

I want to come play with the equipment.

I was able to get ahold of the menu. It's pretty long so I've pasted it below the jump for those of you not clicking through directly.
