Two Sundays ago, I flew down to Louisville, KY, to help run the American Craft Spirits Association competition. For sustenance, I headed first down to the Against the Grain brewery and restaurant for some craft beer and food, but afterwards I needed a nightcap. A lot of Louisville's cocktail bars are closed on Sundays, but luckily I found one on my list of recommendations that was indeed open. Proof on Main was also between the brew pub and my hotel, so it made perfect sense. The bar there was set off from the main dining room by a wall which served as the bar's backbar. For my nightcap, I selected the Poison Arrow that was perhaps a Boulevardier cross with a Liberal that dropped the sweet vermouth akin to this Creole variation.
