The craft cocktail movement can be rather irritating: three-piece suits, beards, and high-minded nonsense that result in overly sweet concoctions at a steep price point. Abacus, however, is a pro shop in the midst of amateurs. Every foam, spritz, infusion, and aging process results in pure cocktail bliss. Spring for the on-menu Killin Thyme or the barrel-aged Old Fashioned from any member of the qualified bar team.
Black Swan Saloon takes home the best cocktail prize.
