Wit & Wisdom, a Tavern by Michael Mina focuses on cocktails made from fresh, sprightly herbs and clean spirits. Take The Company, for instance, a house concoction of saffron-infused Beefeater gin, honey, lemon and orange bitters, shaken up and served in a champagne coupe glass with a fresh sprig of thyme on top. A more richly flavored drink, the Charming Farmer, is made with George Dickel whiskey, maple syrup, and lemon, and served with a garnish of charred bay leaf. You’ll find a couple of classics in the mix as well, like the Aviation cocktail, a blend of gin, maraschino liqueur, crème de violette and fresh lemon, shaken vigorously and served up in a delicate champagne coupe glass.
