If you go out as much as we do. And you do…you’re always looking for the next crisp cocktail. All in the name of supporting the ModXMan on the run and all our infinite tastes, our Lance Avery Morgan has found the best ones this very minute, no matter what your pleasure…
THE OLD-FASHIONED WAY
It’ll be a soothing way to end the day… or start the evening. Hands down, from our perspective, The Townsend wins this one for the best Old Fashioned. The key to a great old fashioned anywhere? Black cherries, not maraschino. The venue’s cool interior has a private club vibe. Plus, you can often see Kathy Valentine, of the Go-Gos fame, perform in the backroom. At The Townsend.
MARGARITA-VILLE IS MY HOME
This classic Texas cocktail mixes lime juice, sugar, Cointreau, and of course, very good tequila like Patron. With a plethora of flavors and options such as on the rocks or frozen, the margarita has become the quintessential drink to help you recapture that last trip to Cabo when you step into the new Grizzelda’s.

MOJITO’S NEW MOJO
Taking its roots from Cuba, this cocktail balances mint, lime, rum, sugar and club soda for the ultimate beach concoction that Drinkwell serves as a specialty. Jump into this McMann & Tate-esque office redux to beat the fall heat with this refreshingly minty cocktail. Sip this at DrinkWell.
FRENCH 75’s NEW GROOVE
What is more refreshing than a cocktail that uses Champagne as its base ingredient? Be more festive than just adding orange juice by adding gin, lemon juice and simple syrup to make this drink. Be like the Left Bankers and toast the joie de vivre. Drink at Hotel St. Cecilia bar the next time someone in town is staying there. At Hotel St. Cecilia.
The perennial British favorite gets a new twist at Kitty Cohen’s on the eastside. It’s like summer year ‘round in a glass. We recommend adding a dash of Pimm’s and you’ll want to put together your own croquet tournament in no time. Enjoy at Kitty Cohen’s.
IT’S ALWAYS DERBY DAY SOMEWHERE
For an endless summer that will take you back to the race in Louisville, drink like a Southerner, sir with this Apple Mint Julep, the classic cocktail’s new groove. Serve to a group of friends and after a few, you’ll be winning by a nose. Sip this at Swift’s Attic.
