What's your favorite drink on the menu right now?
Sadoian: We change our menu every week, so by the time this goes to print it will probably be off! The Black Princess is one of our newest drinks on the menu from bartender Nick Frank. Named after one of Privateer Luke Ryan's famous ships during the American Revolution, it features Privateer Rum's Navy Yard, mixed with Michter's rye whiskey, Amaro di Angostura, and sweet vermouth. It's rich, textured, and full-flavored. A great winter warmer as the leaves change colors and we begin to welcome the season.
You're a fan of the lower-alcohol cocktail -- sell it to us.
Sadoian: Yeah, you're right. I love lower-alcohol drinks. First and foremost, I appreciate the longevity it affords me when I'm out and about. I'd rather be able to visit a few bars and try several different drinks, rather than sip two heavy-hitting cocktails and be done for the night. Lower-alcohol cocktails also tend to play a little better with food -- either lighter flavors, higher acid (think sherry, vermouth, etc.) -- and of course, they won't put you under the table.
