1 oz Makers Mark, .75 oz Dolin dry vermouth, .75 oz Campari, 3 dashes of Fee Brothers Whiskey Barrel-Aged Bitters. Served on the rocks with an expressed lemon peel garnish.

Slow Bar's Maiden Japan
1.5 oz Suntory Whisky Toki, spoonful of green-tea syrup, served on a big cube and garnished with Asian dried sweet cherry.
“Similar to an Iron Maiden concert in Nagoya, Japan, in 1981. This drink is loaded with whiskey and smoke but still carries the subtlety of fragrant green tea that you would expect from an ancient culture with class that still likes to party.”

1.5 oz Maker's Mark, .5 oz maple simple syrup, .5 oz fresh lemon juice, 2 dashes of Bitterman's Hellfire Habanero Bitters, and muddled jalapeño. Served on the rocks.

1 oz Jim Beam Black, .5 oz Campari, and .5 oz sweet vermouth. Barrel aged, and topped with Amarena cherry syrup and soda. Served on the rocks in a highball glass, with a picked orange wedge and Amarena cherry.
“Being the beer and whisk(e)y bar that we are, we love barrel-aged substances of all types. For over two months we have been rotating the Highballevardier cocktail batch in and out of five-liter barrels to impart oak, vanilla, caramel, and spice flavors, providing even more complexity for your palate. Life is too short to drink simple libations, so treat yourself!”
