re: WSJ Says We Fail As City of Serious Spirits

Eric, thanks for bringing this up. After watching a season of Mad Men with Manhattan in hand, reading Imbibe!, and visiting a NYC speakeasy that re-defined my idea of a good drink (chemistry vs. a long pour)—I’m left wanting more from Dallas’ bartenders.

Here’s what I’m searching for:

  • House made bitters, syrups, and grenadine
  • Egg whites in my sours, and Maraschino Luxardo in my Aviation
  • Vodka being the least prevalent bottle behind the bar
  • High quality, and correct types of ice (PDT has four)
  • A bartender that knows the Savoy
  • A proper gin martini (Plymouth gin, please)

I could go on, but I’m essentially looking for a bartender as obsessed as this guy.
