General Manager/Beverage Director Francesco Amodeo and Bartender Milton Hernandez have joined forces behind the bar at Ashok Bajaj’s Bibiana to create 25 new seasonally-inspired cocktails; a countdown to December 25th and the merrymaking holidays. I was feeling pretty merry after the tasting;) We're hoping they add a Kristen and a Lauren to the list next year.
These exclusive libations are made with Bibiana’s delicious homemade liquors.
The new cocktails began yesterday and run through the 25th. Each day a new cocktail is released. You can order cocktails from the previous days, but cannot order the others until their release date.
Don't forget to order Chef Nicholas Stefanelli's pizzas ($15) in the bar area while your sipping the delicious cocktails.
