…Take the bar lineup, for example. You might just want the usual beer — Bud, Sam Adams, Coors, etc. — or you could go for one of the specialty martinis or cocktails. Many of the cocktails are fruit juice-based, which normally I steer clear of, but I was convinced otherwise when I learned that all the juices here — from white peach to blood orange — are fresh-squeezed in-house. Or you could go with the locally improved “Alfred,” which is Oak Street’s take on the classic Long Island iced tea, combining vodka, gin, triple sec, rum, tequila, sour and apple schnapps.
If you’re feeling the need for a concoction in an up glass, go for the “Remember the Maine” martini, which mixes whiskey, sweet vermouth, absinthe and Cherry Heering. The list is creative, abundant and sure to please drinkers of any ilk.
