We tried it: Bottlefork's $35 cocktail
Like chef Kevin Hickey, Bottlefork's head barkeep Brandon Phillips (The Drawing Room) has a pedigree. Then again, when I read about a cocktail called Bill Brasky, the Gentleman's "Cut" ($35), a mix of Buffalo Trace bourbon, Hudson New York corn whiskey, Bank Note scotch, Journeyman rye and "the aftershave Brasky used to woo your wife," I figured I'd save myself the 35 bucks and just spray a canister of Pledge furniture cleaner on my tongue. There was no way this mixture of high-proof alcohol would taste good.
