Aquavit Pickleback at the Townsend

Now that you have upgraded from Urban to Anthro, it's probably time you brought a little sophistication to your hump day debauchery, too. Before agonizing over which dry cocktail goes best with juicy office gossip, get tongues wagging with a shot from your college nights. The Townsend's version of the venerable Dirty Sixth classic starts by replacing whiskey with Krogstad aquavit, following it up with brine left over from the kitchen's many pickling projects. We're not sure if it's a classy way to be trashy or a trashy way to be classy, but we do know we have the next round.

The Townsend:
718 Congress #100
