Spring Cocktail Menu
It’s about time we changed up our cocktail menu at PH. What better day than today?
The exciting thing about this collection of new drinks is just that – they’re all new to our repertoire.
We have a big range of flavour too, from light aperitifs to the strong, dark, and smokey. We have three amaro sours – something you don’t see very often – including:
– our version of the “Jasmine” with gin, Campari, Cointreau, and lemon juice
– the surprisingly refreshing “Debbie Don’t” from Dutch Kills in Long Island City, NY, featuring a creative combination of tequila, Averna, lemon juice, and maple syrup
– and the “Ashton Lane,” a super dry whiskey sour with almost a full ounce of Fernet Branca
To commemorate the passing of Martin Miller, the man behind what is probably our favourite gin, we have “Miller’s Orchard,” a strong but fruity showcase of how well MM gin can stand out in a sour, combining lemon, apricot, orange, and peach with the gin’s caraway, juniper, and almost melon-like flavour.
We have a couple classics, as simple as the “Champagne Cocktail” and as unique as “The Royalist” (which uses dry vermouth as a base rather than a spirit), and of course a PH list wouldn’t be complete without some sort of Old Fashioned. We chose Uncle Val’s botanical gin for spring, and you’ll see why.
Lastly, and not surprisingly, we have a couple strong stirred drinks with whiskey and mezcal. If you like smokey flavours, be sure to check out the “Touch of Evil,” a simple twist on the classic Martinez, using both mezcal and tequila reposado with Carpano Antica sweet vermouth, maraschino, and the clove-spiced Jerry Thomas Decanter Bitters.
There are a lot of changes coming to behind the Pourhouse bar, and this great new list is just the beginning. Come on down and let us know what you think!
