L'Americain at the Experimental Cocktail Club
Rarely do you see anything artichoke-infused. But the French proprietors at the Experimental Cocktail Club are serving it up in a cocktail that will get you through any blizzard. The owners opened their first bar in Paris under the same name five years ago in order to capitalize on boring, nearly non-existent cocktail culture.
Now they bring that creativity to the Lower East Side with L'Americain. With artichoke-infused sweet vermouth, thyme water, walnut-infused Campari, and orange oils, the drink is intense and robust. The cocktail is carbonized and bottled, and served with a straw.
