For my second drink at ArtBar, I asked bartender Elizabeth Powell for the Stitzle Flip that I had read about on Josh Childs' Boston Globe blog post. While the Flip was on the sweet side, it definitely had a lot of complexity to it. Once mixed, a cherry vanilla aroma was followed by a creamy sip containing light grape notes from the Bonal. Next, a bitter cherry and Bourbon swallow was capped off by a lightly clove finish. While the sip was definitely sweet, the Bourbon and clove did help to dry out the swallow.
