Bucket List Cocktails: Part 2

In part 1 of my Bucket List Cocktails I examined five of the ten cocktails I would like to try before I depart this earth and the bars that I think they would be best in. Part 2 is more of the same including one cocktail that is unlike anything I have ever seen.

1. Sazerac at Tujague's, New Orleans, LA

The Sazerac is the official cocktail of New Orleans and while the Sazerac coffee shop that created the drink is no longer in existence, it can be found at just about any bar in the area. 

2. Moscow Mule at Cock'n'Bull, Santa Monica, CA

While the Moscow Mule was created in Manhattan, the drink really picked up steam in Los Angeles. Some would argue that it isn't really a Moscow Mule unless it is made with Cock'n'Bull Ginger Beer. 

3. Hemmingway Daiquiri at Employee's Only, New York, NY

The drink made famous by one of my favorite writers made in one of the most iconic cocktail bars of the 20th century. Yes, please. 

4. Corpse Reviver No. 2 at American Bar at the Savoy, London, England

When Prohibition hit the US in 1920, famed US barman Harry Craddock fled to London where he could continue to make drinks. He is known for a few famous ones, but the Corpse Reviver No. 2 is one of my favorites. 

5. Camouflage at Artesian, London, England

This may be the most unique cocktail on my list. Artesian has been named cocktail bar of the year for the third straight year and they got there by creating some of the most interesting cocktails ever. The Camouflage is a gold pineapple filled with gin, sandalwood and a few other ingredients. Its beauty is what drew me to it. The fact that it is Gin makes it all the better.
