Negroni or Old Fashioned, Whiskey Sour or Manhattan for those who are "skilled" or those who are on the side of the classics, or "I like something delicious and preferably colorful", "I want refreshing like a sea breeze", "and I would like something sweet, but not so much" – no matter what you will choose and no matter in what way you will order it, be sure that at the establishments and bars from our list you will have a great evening.
