i had the most amazing cocktails in the east village, at a bar called death & company. sort of a morbid name, yes . . . the drinks have a creative twist on pre-prohibition cocktails. this bar is dark and moody and stocked with an array of rare, aged, brown liquors (my favorite liquor color). the talented mixologists concoct the most incredible drinks i have ever sipped, layered with flavors that dance in your mouth. and the drinks come with ONE gigantic ice cube. classy.
