Shooting with Spates

Shooting with Spates

charles+spates Charles Clark, the head bartender at Mott St., was kind enough to let us into the bar on his day off to feature a classic cocktail in our Zac Spates whiskey shots. The Zac Spates cups that we feature in the Lillstreet Gallery are all versatile and vary in size and coloring, but his shots offer the perfect size for whiskey “shots,” or 5 ounce pours (a standard shot is around 1.25 ounces). Or, if you’re feeling classy, you can stick with Spates’ purple color scheme and whip up an Aviation.

An Aviation

2 oz gin
3/4 oz fresh lemon juice
1/2 oz Luxardo maraschino liqueur
1/8 oz Creme de Violette
*Add a handful of square cubes to an aluminum shaker and shake vigorously until cold (your hand should stick to the side of the shaker slightly).

Thirsting for more? You can ride out the dry, boozy trend that was set with the Aviation and try out a Last Word as well.

A Last Word

3/4 oz gin
3/4 oz Green Chartreuse
3/4 oz Luxardo maraschino liqueur
3/4 oz fresh lemon juice
*Add a handful of square cubes to an aluminum shaker and shake vigorously until cold (your hand should stick to the side of the shaker slightly).

More and more, restaurants are calling on ceramic artists to help them give their guests an even more unique dining experience. Mott Street uses ceramic mugs made by Lillstreet artist Kevin Shannon, a special treat for their weekend brunch-goers, and their sister restaurant Ruxbin did a complete overhaul of their serving vessels so they could feature the work of ceramic artist Annemarie Martens. With our constantly evolving online shop, you too can curate a dining experience that goes beyond the dishes you create and extends to the vessels in which you serve your company. Bottoms up!

-Michelle, a Mott St. regular and the Lillstreet Gallery Website Coordinator
