On the hunt for fancy drinks, we met up with some friends at Whiskey in Durham. Leather club chairs, finely coiffed bar keeps and low lighting helps you swallow the $12 drink prices.
The cocktails are heavy with the booze, which is truly fabulous. I started with a Sazerac cocktail which has sazerac whiskey, bitters, an absinthe rinse, and orange peel – keeping up my tradition of man drinks. I finished with a Mother Earth Endless River Kolshe, which was refreshing. Brian had a perfectly mixed Dark and Stormy with cubed ginger rumbling around the glass. He finished with a fancy gin drink that came in a lady glass (we can’t remember the name).
Nice place for a night cap. Does allow smoking and cigar sales – so tobacco weary beware. Step back in time and get yourself a fancy drink.
