TIE: Twin Liquors; Spec's

A Spec's employee's suggestion to leave New Amsterdam Straight Gin in the freezer, allowing for a thick, icy smoothness, was one of the best pieces of advice ever afforded to this novice drinker. Whether searching for imported beer, fine liquor, or wine, that's exactly the type of customer that will feel totally comfortable at Twin Liquors and Spec's, both of which are as well-known for their insights as their selections and prices – the sort of stuff that impresses sophisticates as well.
