So passionate about cocktail craft are the owners here, they boast a Clinebell CB300X2 commercial ice machine that spits out 300-pound blocks of clear, crystal ice–the type ice sculptors use. Each major spirit group gets two pages of the menu, broken down into six preparation methods, and all drinks are $10. Try the Pepino Fizz.
