When the nation’s bartenders converge on Atlanta, as they did for this year’s Atlanta Food and Wine Festival, the first destination for drinks and merriment is TICONDEROGA CLUB, tucked into the dark back corner of Krog Street Market. Luckily for us non-bartenders, the club takes all comers. Greg Best, Paul Calvert, and crew keep the cocktail menu concise, but every single drink is like a mini-masterpiece. The Long Bottom Stretch, for example, just may be the ultimate spin on a gin and tonic, incredibly smooth and complex with the clever addition of a splash of Benedictine. The eponymous Ticonderoga Cup, on the menu since day one, rewards intrepid drinkers by being boozy, fruity, and herbaceous, but never too much. And that’s how we feel about drinking at Ticonderoga Club — it’s never too much. less...

H. Harper Station - Permanently Closed (Permanently Closed)

If you can't find something to wet your whistle at H. Harper Station, you must be on the wagon. The city's most exhaustive menu of original cocktails is divided up by spirit, from vodka to cachaca to mezcal, with several varieties of Manhattans - including one featuring Pappy for the deep-pocketed - and an assortment of punch bowls for adventurous tables. That's in addition to a hefty roster of classic cocktails, an extensive list of bourbons, and even a decent selection of draft beers. Considering that restaurant owner Jerry Slater is the former mixologist for One Flew South, the focus on cocktails is no big surprise. What is pleasantly surprising is that we've yet to taste a clunker in the bunch. less...

Edgar's Proof & Provision
Sometimes a cocktail's name is so off-the-wall high-concept that you've just got to order it, even when you suspect you won't want to finish it.

Sometimes a cocktail's name is so off-the-wall high-concept that you've just got to order it, even when you suspect you won't want to finish it. And When I Was Eight at Proof and Provision sounds like just such an irresistible novelty. Charmingly topped with a few colorful Froot Loops, it looks and tastes just like the bottom-of-the-bowl cereal milk you gleefully slurped as a child - if your mom spiked it with high-test vodka. But, rather than create a three-sip gimmick, bartender Nate Shuman has somehow found a way - with the aid of oat grain vodka, orange and elderflower liqueurs, orange bitters, plus cream - to replicate a comforting taste of nostalgia and deliver a creamy, end-of-the-evening dessert cocktail you'll want to savor. less...
