Christina Ramey, Eight Row Flint
Ramey’s favorite is the Ginnie Yon Yon, which was inspired by a performing monkey in the Heights during pre-Prohibition days. It’s a fizzy mix of gin and apple brandy, Crème Yvette, lavender bitters, lemon and vanilla bean syrup.
Leslie Ross Krockenberger, Reserve 101
Rosemary’s Baby is an updated New York Sour with a honey, apricot and rosemary cordial, lemon, and a float of Bordeaux. “It will leave you chilled and thrilled.”
Elyse Blechman, Tongue-Cut Sparrow
Blechman’s latest love is the ice-packed Swizzle made with Plantation 3 Stars rum, lime, falernum (spiced sweet syrup), mint and bitters. “Beautiful and delicious,” she admits.
