We're not huge drinkers, but even we can't deny the beauty and appeal of a well-crafted cocktail. And if that's what you're looking for, then @barminibyjose is the spot. Made with exceptional technique and ingenuity, every drink we've had there has honestly been amazing - amazing enough that these "light drinkers" each ended up ordering a couple more because we were so eager to try some other options from the huge list.
This cocktail is the "Negroni in Thyme". We're not sure we've ever had a drink with this much planning and concept behind it. It all starts with the glass (no idea what the actual name of the glassware is). A tall cylindrical compartment at the bottom opens up in a large bowl at the top. The glass is served to you with a huge spherical ice cube, conveniently large enough to occlude the opening into the lower compartment. What is then poured into the glass is essentially a classic Martinez cocktail. But as the ice cube melted and stopped blocking flow into the bottom of the glass, the cocktail slowly became a thyme and rosemary infused Negroni. Thus, a negroni in time. Two drinks in one. So brilliant and fun. And delicious too.
