Hello belle,

Here’s the new menu for Copa as promised you. We had some issues so we finished it today at 5:30 and went live at 6. Still….not even our PR has it.

Thanks to the new layout, this menu can be updated almost daily.

Let me know what you think.

Hope to see you soon,

Woo hoo! Check out my fave bar Copa d’Oro’s new summer menu! Looks like they categorized them by spirits instead of aromatic, sour, etc. And the menu has been streamlined a bit. Here are just the new drinks.

  • High Kick, $11 — Buffalo Trace Bourbon, Crème de Mure blackberry, ginger beer, fresh lemon juice


  • Golden Jubilee, $12 — Hardy V.S. Cognac, Buffalo Trace Bourbon honey, fresh lemon juice, pear

  • Decadence Elegance, $15 — Courvoisier Exclusif, Apricot Brandy, Cynar Pimento “Windsor” Dram (Damian of Roger Room‘s recipe), orange bitter

The Boys From Out of Town

  • Sailor’s Lunch, $12 — Pusser’s Navy Rum, Yellow Chartreuse, Punt é Mes _* Hamish McShane, Bayswater Brasserie, Sydney_

There are also spirit flights! Hard-core. I saw something like this at speakeasy Bourbon & Branch in San Francisco.

  • Around the World, $35 — Japan, Suntory Single Malt Yamazaki; Scotland, Glenrothes ’87; Ireland, Tullamore Dew; Canada, Hirsh Canadian Rye; USA, Eagle Rare 17 yr

  • Bourbon Single Barrel, $35 — Four Roses, Elijah Craig 18yr, Elmer T. Lee Evan Williams, Jack Daniels

But the big news has to be the brand-new bar menu which sounds delicioso, but also makes me miss the cheaper $9 paninis.

  • Avocado Endive Salad, $13 — Avocado, Dried Cranberry, Goat Cheese Pine nut, Pear, Balsamic Vinaigrette
  • Hearts of Palm Salad, $11 — Artichoke, Endive, Radicchio Shaved Parmiggiano, Lemon Vinaigrette

  • Prosciutto Panini, $13 — Prosciutto, Parmiggiano, Arugula tossed with Italian Olive Oil Toasted on Fresh Baguette

What does this all mean? That I’ve got some drinking to do!
