Two Mondays ago, we paid a visit to Bergamot for cocktails. The drink I asked bartender Paul Manzelli about was the Kentucky Proper off of the cocktail menu; Paul described the libation as their Bourbon take on the rum-based Old Cuban. Since the original is so delightful, I gave the thumbs up to the idea.
