Checked out Mace for a drink last night - as always, fine cocktails conceived under the eye of Nico de Soto, for sure. Lots of ingredients, many weird ones for cocktails but they go down easy, so be careful.

 

Gorgeous glassware and barware - not surprising, considering the relationship with Cocktail Kingdom (stay off this website unless you have willpower).

Right. We've got this odd situation where there are two (maybe four: don't forget Dead Rabbit upstairs) cocktail bars you have to wait to get into -- and then a whole bunch you don't. Pretty obvious how to play this.

Dead Rabbit is purportedly the world's best bar.  http://mashable.com/...-spirit-awards/


Then that happened.

I think stay away from Avenue C unless you have will power.  In addition to Mace, four cocktail bars, a craft beer bar, a German beer hall, a wine bar, and a few dives in the five block strip from 6th to 11th.

 

Yes, Mace is just a step off the Avenue itself.

I loved their eggnog(?) That replaced the dairy with almond milk and had some orange flower water in it. I'd love to find a recipe.

Sounds a bit like an orgeat thing. Or, like this...

 

Fat Washed with Butter and Hay
Manhattan’s over-the-top holiday pop-up bar, Miracle on Ninth, serves eggnog flavored with butter and hay. The Jingle Ball Nog is made with eggs, cream, spices, almond milk and the key ingredient: hay-and-butter-fat-washed Cognac. By fat-washing the Cognac, bartender Nico de Soto rounds out the spirit so that everything melds into one creamy cocktail.

Makes sense. Lines around the block?

Yep. That's the drink. But now I need a recipe.

It appears people were lined up before opening time this weekend. Probably OK during the week.

What? No bacon washed cognac?

Right - in 2015, it's hay and butter.
