Drink is World’s Best Cocktail Bar!

Here in Boston the cocktail scene just keeps growing. Many, many thanks has to go to John Gertsen and Barbara Lynch for creating Drink in South Boston. They have created something truly special by having a casual and fun, cocktail party atmosphere that just happens to serve up some of the best drinks on the planet. Drink definitely deserves the award of “World’s Best Cocktail Bar” which is exactly the title they just won down in New Orleans at Tales of the Cocktail. The bartending world puts on its version of the the Oscars every year at an international cocktail conference. This year Drink and others won big:


To honor the great Drink, my former home where I learned most of my tricks, we’re making the Fort Point cocktail for our drink of the week here at backbar. It’s Drink’s signature variation on a Manhattan, with rye whiskey, punt e mes, and benedictine. It’s a delicious, simple sipper. Cheers!
