Sustain's Classic Cocktails With a Twist
|Daniel Toral shakes it up, baby.|
The cocktails range from The Flirty Flapper (made with Ketel One Citroen, white tea, lemon and cardomom blueberries) to The Minister, a bourbon based libation. (Lee Klein reviewed the place just last week.)
Short Order tried the Elixir Magnifique, a refreshing blend of 44North vodka, St. Germaine, Chartreuse, and strawberry/black pepper marmalade. The drink was pink and light, with a spicy afternote.
The 1933 was made with Orangerie (an orange infused scotch), Cherry Heering, Dolin Rouge, egg white, lemon and angostura bitters was served in a classic champagne sauce. This is one potent cocktail.

If you want to try some of these libations yourself, Sustain is offering a daily happy hour. From 5 to 7 p.m., wines by the glass, beer and well drinks are half off, but try one of these über-cool cocktails. At $6 a glass, you can afford to be daring. So brush off your fedora, slip on your little black cocktail dress, and order an Elixir Magnifique instead of your usual Bud on draft and step back in time. Play it again, Sam.
