Take two trends—cocktails and cupcakes—smash them together, and you get this novel concept from Jason Lawrence and Cole Bernard (the Eldridge). Inside the ornate lounge, customers can order drinks from mixologist Charlotte Voisey, which she created to pair with mini booze-soaked cupcakes from Baked by Melissa. Among the alcoholic confections are Jameson-spiked espresso cupcakes (coupled with a Jameson-espresso martini), and rum-laden vanilla bites topped with a ginger-cookie-crumb frosting (served alongside a matching tipple of rum, ginger and fresh apple and lemon juices). Talk about a girly drink.
