Well, the wait is over and we have some breaking news. And it comes from the Sasha Petraske (the legendary barman behind Milk & Honey and Little Branch) front—White Star has gone the way of Milk & Honey, only you don't have to run a sting operation to get in the door and the hooch doesn't hit the wallet quite so hard.
What this means to you: The dark, wooden tiny slip of a cocktail den where you've been going to try and get drugged up on absinthe will now be the home of another slew of M&H-caliber cocktails. We're talking about the simple classics—three bearded experts behind the bar just cranking out perfect Caipirinhas and Gin Rickeys over some hand-cracked ice.
All of this gives you a new place to dig in, drink and wait for the winter weather to pass.
Speaking of winter weather, you might want to ask for the off-the-menu Sea Fizz—we won't ruin the surprise except to tell you that it smells and tastes like the ocean (except, you know, drinkable).
And considering the weather outside, a beach getaway in a glass sounds perfect right about now.
