Best Cocktail for Putting Hair on Your Chest
The Corn n' Oil at the Torpedo Room
If you wander into a room adorned with a giant swordfish and see a bar man clad in a floral print shirt, it's safe to assume that there are drinks inside this establishment served with a little paper umbrella. But you don't want some little frou-frou baby girl drink. No! You are going to drink like a man! A man who is not interested in sipping anything from a tiny little straw. Oh no. You work out. You need an excuse to flex some hard-earned muscle. You need a drink that will sprout a few extra chest hairs — and that is the Corn n' Oil at the Torpedo Room inside Eat Street Social. There's a reason the bar's thatched roof overhang has been doused with a flame retardant: A mixture of Gamle Ode Aquavit, house-made falernum, lime juice, Bittercube bitters, and a float of rum is finished with a flame, which the bartender draws up into the air in a magnificent burst of manly power. These bartenders have conquered the elements and you will conquer this spirit-soaked, smoke-kissed beauty. Leave the snow cones for the little ones, and quaff this hell-raising bad-boy concoction.
