The Rabbit Hole team recently returned from a weeklong spring break. Unless you’re a spoiled coed with rich parents, you may not have been so lucky. But thanks to cocktail captain Thomas Kim, you can drink your spring break at his Korean gastropub at Midtown Global Market.
Heed ours and order an herbaceous Sage Advice, using a class-defying sage spirit from Art in the Age — a Philadelphia organic distillery that also makes soap, quilts and expensive sweaters. Sage instead of juniper leads the botanical medley of thyme, rosemary, lavender, fennel and others in this gin-like spirit.
The grass is still brown, but this verdurous sour-style cocktail is blooming with muddled cucumber and basil syrup, and brightened with lemon juice and Easy & Oskey orange-coriander bitters. The vegetal garden-in-a-glass beats slamming rail tequila at Señor Frogs and reduces the odds of waking up with a penis drawn on your face. So, call it a win-win.
