New Cocktails for the Minty at Seven Grand & Cole’s
Seven Grand launched a new cocktail list a couple of months ago and I tried a couple then. Recently I found myself back for a going-away party and got to the bar early. I got the Duck Hunter to start and then later had the Dagny Taggert when the party was under way.
Duck Hunter – Limited edition Seven Grand Eagle Rare 10-year-0ld bourbon, Carpano Antica, Amaro Lucano
Dagny Taggart– Glenlivet, Aperol, Torrani liqueurs
I liked both but my inclination would be towards the Duck Hunter as I prefer up cocktails. Although I do think the round ball of ice in the Dagny Taggart is super awesome.
I’ll have to gather up a bunch of folks for punch next time. The Kentucky River Fish Kill Punch (Wild Turkey 101, Aperol, grapefruit, nutmeg, Prosecco) looks great.
Before my birthday party, we stopped in for my favorite bourbon pecan pie at Cole’s and I had a cocktail from their specials board. I tried the Bloom County (Bonded Old Grandad, Licor 43, sweet vermouth, Peychaud’s). I was debating the Old Devil (Appleton Estate 12 Year rum, Smith & Cross rum, Sailor Jerry rum, Angostura, Bittermen’s Tiki bitters, brown sugar) which sounded like a rum lover’s dream.
The last time I was in Cole’s, I had A Red Car Named Desire (rye, Cynar, Luxardo, Maurin liqueur) during the punch crawl which I was thinking about again but we had to jam. Next time!
I have to say I love the lighting at 213 Nightlight bars. The cocktails look fantastic.
