Sunshine in a Coupe Glass

I’m back in New York for a little more than a minute, and I’ve decided that since I’m not here so much anymore, I need to take advantage of the time I’m home. So this weekend I made it my mission to visit Little Branch, a speakeasy-style bar in the West Village. And it just so happened that I made it there twice! What was I drinkin’? Well, at Little Branch (below), the actual cocktail menu is fairly limited to sips w/ lots of brown spirits (think juleps, cognac-infused concoctions, etc.). If just the thought of sippin’ whiskey gives you headache, take a leap of faith and order the Bartender’s Choice. Little Branch’s talented mixologists will ask you what you like and whip up something delicious. My sip was the Sunflower: a lip-puckering blend of gin, St. Germain (yes, it’s back), Cointreau, and absinthe. It was a lovely preview to Spring, which can’t get here fast enough.
