Bar director Ian Scalzo is an expert at crafting sweet cocktails without veering into the overly-saccharine territory of the suburban restaurant-bar. In fact, his concoctions—drinks like the Old Prophet, made with Arkansas black applejack, Mosswood espresso washed whisky, rouge vermouth, pandan maple and lemon tincture—are made with ingredients and an attention to detail that unlikely to ever crossed the threshold of a TGIFridays. One of his secrets? House-made syrups made from wine, sugar, fruit and herbs. Combined with top-shelf liquors and flavorful accents, they’re a grown-up throwback to the wine coolers your mom drank in the early 90s.
