Best Cocktail List: Barrel 44

From the March 28, 2013 edition

Columbus loves whiskey and Barrel 44 Whiskey Bar knows their s--- when it comes to whiskey-based cocktails, offering a solid stable of regular cocktails to go with seasonal varieties.

The Original Manhattan is the classically-crafted standout, but some of Barrel 44’s modern creations are stellar as well — the Kentucky Mule, using bourbon instead of vodka (with ginger beer and lime) and the 44 Negroni is made with Watershed Bourbon Barrel Aged Gin.

Most creative are the in-house crafted barrel-aged cocktails. It’s an ever-changing recipe but no matter what the concoction, it’s always delicious.
