Propagandist is an escape from Downtown

…Brian insists that The Propagandist isn’t a craft-cocktail bar. Feel free to argue; the cocktails are mighty fine. The Thomas Edison, made with Basil Hayden Bourbon, Cherry Heering, Velvet Falernum and blackberry brandy, tastes how good bourbon smells—smooth with just a hint of sweetness. The Mango En Fuego, made with Tito’s Vodka (Propagandist’s well vodka; Google it), has a nice amount of heat (muddled fresh habanero peppers) balanced by fresh-pressed mango juice. The El Viejo—described as a “Mexican Old Fashioned”—was made interesting with a hint of chocolate bitters. The Ruby Red Coat (Plymouth gin, St. Germaine, aperol and fresh-pressed grapefruit juice) includes a basil leaf held in place by perfect squares of ice so you get a whiff of basil with each sip.

“It’s our job to get you into the drink; it’s the drink’s job to implant a memory,” Brian says. “It has to have that ‘wow’ factor.”
