Cocktail: Humbug | Bartender: Jermaine Carty

One of the things I luv about Nikai is that we’re constantly encouraged to create and come up with new dranks. This ain’t on the menu but I was looking for a reason to use these insane house bitters my manager had created. At first I was toying around with Nonino, and then one day our bev director brought down some Spanish sherry for us to test out and that was that. What I’m going for here is essentially Christmas in a glass: sweet, plummy/berry/citrusy with cocoa-espresso-vanilla (Nikai House Bitters #2). Sneak a bit of bourbon in there and you got some serious holiday cheer. Fireal.
