Though the bar is not very big, the selection of spirits is amazing. The bartender (who I have met in the past from his coming to the bar with the ACME folks) showed me the leather bound book of spirits that they have on hand. The spirits ranged from various entries per spirit and was a very international blend of spirits that seemed to come from every corner of the world. Since we were going to have dinner at Mayahuel, we decided to keep out cocktails in the Tequila and Mezcal families. On the House Cocktails menu, there were a few selections that fit our desire to stay within the Tequila and Mezcal families.
The first cocktail I ordered was probably my favorite. The Pedron was a nice spicy blend of Tequila made with Pueblo Viejo Tequila, Cholula hot sauce, fresh Grapefruit juice, lime and orange bitters. I especially loved the salt and pepper rim on the glass that just gave the cocktail a nice crunchy texture.

The cocktails are decently priced as you can see from the list below:
Foxy Brown No. 2 el jimador tequila, mint, ginger, lime, grapefruit, honey
Fair Lady aperol, plymouth gin, lemon, st germain, honey, orange bitters, champagne
Jones St. Daiquiri blackwell rum, old overholt rye, lime, honey, aphrodite bitters
Graffiti Green beefeater gin, green bell pepper, basil, lime, agave
Sour No. 9 beefeater gin, averna, st germain, lemon, egg white, blood orange bitters
El Padron pueblo viejo tequila, fresh grapefruit, cholula, lime, orange bitters
Polish Pear Sour pear-infused zubrowka, lemon, honey, egg white
Green Tomato Margarita green tomato-infused el jimador, lime, agave
The only disappointment I had (and it is very minimal) is that I wanted to try the barrel aged Buffalo Smoker which contained Illegal Joven Mezcal, Zubrowska Vodka, lime and oleo sacchrum. The batch they had in the barrel had finished so I would have to wait until the next batch is ready. Guess I have another reason to go back to ACME. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a cool and relaxed environment to have a few cocktails.
Until Then Happy Drinking,
