Columbus Inn, JAM Bistro, The Reef and Espuma Restaurant & Martini Bar: Best Cocktail Selection

Share

EDITORS’ PICK, UPSTATE
The signature cocktails at
Columbus Inn all have a little twist (and we don’t mean lemon peel). The olive in the Tavern Martini is stuffed with blue cheese, for example, and the mojito is raspberry flavored. We’re fans of the lemonade, made with lemon-thyme simple syrup and vodka, as well as a clementine-honey Gimlet (also vodka—not gin). But our favorite—and it seems most other patrons’, too—is the American Mule, which is a Moscow Mule re-imagined: fresh lime blended with ginger beer mixed with American Harvest organic vodka, all served in an insulated steel mug to ensure maximal chill. Nice. 2216 Pennsylvania Ave., Wilmington, 571-1492, columbusinn.net

EDITORS’ PICK, DOWNSTATE
At JAM Bistro, Gosling’s dark rum appears in classics like the rich Hot- Buttered Rum and fun blends like the Dark & Stormy, made with ginger beer. The vodka in the strawberry lemonade is infused with fruit from Wyoming’s Fifer Orchards. Housemade infusions of fruit, herbs and spices raise the bar on drinks like a Manhattan. The gauntlet has been thrown. 21 Baltimore Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 226-5266, jambistro.com
