I was just expecting to stop in for one drink at Huckleberry’s after a busy day on Monday. I ordered a Rusty Nail (Scotch and Drambuie for those of you who don’t know what comprises this classic yet forgotten cocktail) while Will pondered his options. The featured drink of the day was a “flight” of tequila. For $25, you get four half-shots of different tequila by Kah (a.k.a the ones in those beautifully decorated skull-like bottles) and then a quarter shot of their top Anejo, which sells for over $200 a bottle. It seemed too good to pass up, so he ordered that. The bartender, Heather, was so pleasant and chatted with us. We were the only two people in the bar at the moment. She brought over an endless amount of lime wedges and a salt shaker so he could get through his tequila. He loved it. Meanwhile, as I finished my drink, I pondered doing the same thing. I’m not much of a tequila guy, so I worried that the assortment would be lost on me. I then just happened to say, “You should offer flights of whiskeys too”. That’s when she said that they have multiple flights and could customize them any way I wanted.
