Everyone has their cocktail quirks. For moi, I’ll likely order the drink on the menu with the most obscure, impossible-sounding ingredients. Molé bitters? Beet-infused gin? Celery juice? Count me in and make it a double. That may be why I gravitated to the Bowery Fix. It had me at bell pepper. Truly, most bartenders would never think to mix tequila, chartreuse, yellow bell pepper, mezcal, and chili oil together, but then again, mixologist extraordinare Naren Young at Saxon + Parole is no ordinary bartender. Props for one of my most memorable modern cocktails in recent memory. I’ll soon be going back for another.
