Cocktail "flight" at Bourbon & Branch?

BonzoGal May 15, 2008 12:54 PM

Hola everyone- my husband and I are starting our 11th anniversary evening this Saturday at Bourbon and Branch (before going to dinner at La Folie, whee!). I love the cocktails there and usually order about two or three different ones for an evening.

So cocktail-o-philes, what would be your ideal "flight" of say, three cocktails for a nice evening out? (We're having cocktails early-ish and having dinner much later in the evening, so indulging shouldn't hurt dinner plans.)

Many thanks for your suggestions!

      Please be careful!! Two drinks at Bourbon and Branch are more than enough. I can't imagine three!

      The Black Manhattan is amazing. Other favorites include the Revolver and I tried a new one called a "Parlay" last night that was really good.

        I'll second Problem Child's Black Manhattan and also second norjah's call for 2 drinks. They'll serve an amuse as well, so you'll have three distinct tastes anyway.

        Thanks! Hubby and I ended up having two of the champagne cocktails each- the French 75, the Elderflower, the Cucumber Gimlet and one other I can't remember, plus the amuses, which, you are correct, was just enough.
