New Fall Menu!

Have you tried the Bitter Dove? Mezcal, grapefruit liqueuer and mexican fernet have never tasted so good together!

What about our Remember the (apple) Maine with rye, apple brandy, vermouth and cherry heering. It has a smidge of absinthe to give it just the right amount of kick.

Maybe you’re more of a scotch drinker? Than you need to try the Missing Link with smokey Laphroiag scotch, vermouth, benedictine and bitters. It’s served at room temperature so it’s akin to sipping on a complex glass of whiskey neat. Perfect for these chillier days coming up!
