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: Travis Salee
Title: Mixologist at Metropole
Favorite Drink to Make: Just Arugula Guy (a gin-based cocktail made with arugula and lime and lemon juice). Arugula gives it a good peppery note and the vegetal/greenness adds a nice touch.
Favorite Place to Drink After Work: Longfellow. The Shiso Painkiller is my beverage of choice. I love how all the fruitier ingredients blend so well to taste so smooth.
