Who chooses a typical dirty martini, when you have the option to order a Gadabout – we don’t know what it is either, but we’re definitely intrigued. Recently we stumbled across a collection of crazy cocktail menus put together by the Mode, that we just had to share. These cocktail lists go above and beyond the average list of classics, with some offering hundreds of combinations to choose from and others that tell an elaborate story. Here are 7 craziest cocktail menus Jake Emen from Mode recommends checking out.
1.) The Dead Rabbit is frequently named one of the best cocktail bars in the country, let alone in it’s hometown of Manhattan.
