Home away from home

Although it’s a bummer to be away from home for training, at least I get to do recon on new cocktail spots. Merchant in Madison, WI, certainly feels like my kind of special place. They have the de la Louisiane on their regular cocktail menu (!!!!).  If you haven’t tried this drink, you’re missing out on a lovely classic. I use this to convert friends to classic cocktails.
