Summer Cocktails Launch at 2E Bar/Lounge at The Pierre
2E Bar/Lounge is offering infused, barrel-aged spirits in its summer cocktail offerings. Mixologist Sachin Hasan has come up with some unusual combinations for his repertoire including Ron Zacapa Rum infused with Vanilla Beans aged in the barrel for one week, Leblon Cachaça infused with date and figs aged in the barrel for 5 days and Old Overholt Rye Whiskey infused with orange zest and dried cherries aged in the barrel for one week. If you love super sweet indulging, try the Aged Beauty cocktail which starts with the rum, and adds rhubarb syrup and bitters. I would love to have this poured over vanilla ice cream. For those who like a bitter sip, Epitome of Elegance marries the cachaça with Aperol, Maraschino Liqueur, and Campari Bitters. My favorite of the night was Timeless Grace. The rye was mixed with Glayva liqueur and Lillet Blanc. A great spot for escaping the city noise (and now heat!), 2E also offers some tasty bites while you sip away.
