Eater asked five bars around the city to create special, limited time only off-the-menu Eater drinks, available through Sunday for Eater's Cocktail Week. So far Brian Butler at A-Frame will serve you a Backwoods Old Fashioned, Erik Lund at Messhall is offering up The Finding [of Another Kindred Soul], Damian Windsor at the Roger Room shares The Borrowed Tuxedo, and Curtis Dean Harrier at SHOREbar is shaking The Big Freeze.
Just next door, Brian Quint of The Hungry Cat has created The Remedy, originally named "Grandpa Barney's Special Remedy" after a family friend who was not, in fact, his grandfather. Grandpa Barney lived on a commune in Nevada during the '70s with some of Quint's family members and he was fond of whiskey. Quint explains that this is a beverage he imagines Grandpa Barney would create for any ailment: "I imagine him picking fresh apples from the apple orchard in the fall or winter to mix with bourbon, vinegar and bitters." So, for $13, Quint calls for Buffalo Trace bourbon, fresh apple juice, pineapple shrub, and a dash of Fee Brothers Whiskey-Barrel Aged Bitters. He garnishes his glass with a dehydrated apple round.
