Our new favorite drink will be muddled for the last time on June 20 when Handke’s and its upstairs bar Encore closes its doors.
Cocktail consumers reacted swiftly to the sobering news: A Facebook group devoted to saving the drink has already be started. Well, alright, we actually started the Facebook group ourselves, but we love the Hi-Hat. The muddled grape and basil concoction is so refreshing, it tastes like summer exploded in your mouth.
You should enjoy one tonight -- and show your support for the departing Brewery District institution. On Fridays the Hi-Hat is only four bucks.
