For our annual Drinking Issue, we chatted with a handful of Cincy bartenders and mixologists to pick their brains about which cocktail they make that's their favorite and where else they drink when they aren't at work.
Name: Omy Bugazia
Title: Bartender at Please
Favorite Drink to Make: I love making the Frida Zipkin for guests. It’s a bright, complex cocktail with fino sherry as the base to make the beverage pop across your palate. Not only is it bright, but it is also bitter, nutty and refreshing. The Frida Zipkin is a great aperitif cocktail to prime guests before a tasting menu. Drink more sherry!
Favorite Place to Drink After Work: Longfellow. In my opinion, this is the best bar in the city, hands down. They have everything from cheap beer to a diverse spirit selection and a tight food menu. Not to mention, they have wonderful music and an awesome space. Ask them for shots of Angostura bitters. It’s great. Do it.
