'Destination: Cocktail' is Bar Noir's 8 East 83rd

Destination Cocktail for blog

Bar Noir, the intimate bar inside the smoothly retro Beverly Hills boutique hotel Maison 140, is featuring a special list of Prohibition-era cocktails on a "Spring Back in Time" menu throughout the month of April. Our favorite creation is exclusive to Bar Noir and a homage to actress Lillian Gish and other artsy ladies of New York's Upper East Side where tea was covertly spiked with something a bit stronger. The drink, which is a tony mixture of rye, Earl Grey tea and tart lemon juice, is called 8 East 83rd — a shout-out to mixologist Nicholas Horton's former address in the Big Apple.
