The Banana (Espolon Reposado, Palo Cortado sherry, banana liquor, bitters) from the short-lived BDK menu is one of Kevin’s favorite cocktails. “I love sherry cocktails and this one’s not too banana-y,” he says. He’s right (go figure since he created it). The banana flavor is subtle and goes well with the hints of caramel, agave, and vanilla.
Things to know: Turnkey is only going to be around for three months, so head over there pronto because come March, the space and cocktail menu are getting updated and the new and improved Cantina will be unveiled. Also, you can order food next door at Hogwash, one of our favorite beer and sausage bars. And because they’re the best, they’ll bring your Abe Froman (beef, cheddar and bacon sausage, and Thousand Island dressing) over to you at Turnkey at Cantina.
Turnkey opens its doors today -- Monday, December 21st -- at 5pm and will be open Monday through Saturday from 5pm to 1:30am.
