One such beverage is the George, Jim and Hanny's, a short drink that's dominated by liquor. To off-set the alcoholic bite, the drink features a little bit of sweet agave syrup to balance out the flavors.
Hanny's is also known for its classically-inspired cocktails presented in smaller serving sizes with strong liquor. The Maple Hook Manhattan is a refined drink that mixes both whiskey and cherry liqueur, with a lemon bite from fresh juice. We checked out how to craft both these cocktails on a recent visit.
