Best Craft cocktail Bar in Upper West Side


Cocktail name OLIVER’S CILANTRO with Micro Cilantro infused Premium Gin, Lillet Blanc, House Made Sour, English Cucumber is what was served at Slightly Oliver at Upper West Side to me last night.


Two college friends and I decided to meet up to catch up afterwork yesterday, and we wanted to seek out a place that serves craft cocktails with unique twists, and we were very pleasantly surprised that we visited this great Upper West Side gastropub called Slightly Oliver.  (here is a photo of the Oliver's Cilantro.)

On their cocktail menu, they cleverly explained the name of the place: 
"In Cockney Slang OLIVER TWIST means DRUNK You might say “I’M A LITTLE OLIVER” which would translate into I ’m a little drunk".

As we browsed through their cocktail menus, here are some of their other signature cocktails:

SLIGHTLY GREEN MARTINI
Premium Vodka, Green Pepper Reduction, Dill Elixir, House Made Sour Mix



SLIGHTLY BULLDOG
Bulldog Gin, Pear Puree, Cloves, Cinnamon, Allspice, Maraschino Liqeur, Maple Syrup, Lemon, Sage

NYC AND THE ORIENT
Thai Basil infused Gin, Yellow Tomato Water, Reduction of Tangerine & Peppercorn, Habanero Bitters

Each drink was very unique and special with just the right twist to keep each sip interesting. Slightly Oliver was a great find for us.

If next time you are in the neighborhood and looking for a great place to have a cocktail or two. This is the right place to be. Here is their website and cocktail menu. http://slightlyolivernyc.com

For other craft cocktail recipes, here is one of my favorite website with many herbal cocktail recipes and fun ways to use bitters into cocktails:

Gary, it is equally important to know all the good sophiscated cocktail establishments as well as Manhattan market knowledge. It is a good way to balance work and sanity.

NYC AND THE ORIENT with Thai Basil infused Gin and Habanero Bitters sounds like a tasty cocktail.
