Something with a Shrub
Spiker and Sponge, Rolf & Daughters
Since its debut nearly two years ago, Rolf & Daughters has become known for its complex drinks paired with funny names, such as the Nothing Camparis 2 U and Cynarnold Schwarzenegger. But the Spiker and Sponge gets our order every time: A little bit tart―with a peach shrub, honey, and lemon finish―it might seem like a summery sip, but the Dickel Rye promises this is no girly drink. Jackalope IPA and Peychaud’s Bitters also help balance things out. $11
