Tonight we headed down to the Lower East Side to have a crawfish boil at one of our favorite spots, The Boil. Since it's obviously a lot of other people's favorite places too we were looking at a bit of a wait. It seemed the perfect opportunity to meander on in to an unassuming pharmacy in Chinatown.
Stimulant: BULL IN A CHINA SHOP
42 Below Vodka, Meyer Lemon, Lavender, Coconut Water, Watermelon, Energy Tincture, Champagne, Lime, Agave
Euphoric Enhancer: THE STUNT DOUBLE
Four Roses Bourbon, Absinthe, Hickory Smoked Peach, Lime, Agave
While we sipped these delicious drinks we took the time to take in our surroundings and appreciate the beaker based lighting fixtures and the mixologists' lab coats. I absolutely love dedication to a theme, so these things delighted me. Before you knew it, we were ready for Round 2:
Euphoric Enhancer: TAXICAB CONFESSIONS
Jim Beam Bourbon, Zu Bisongrass Vodka, Maple, Carpano Antica Sweet Vermouth, Lemon, Apple Cider, Nutmeg
Stress Reliever: WOLF IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING
Auchentoshan Single Malt Scotch, Cocoa Nib, Black Currant, Chocolate Extract, Lime, Agave
Finally, after these delicious drinks our table at The Boil was ready. A couple of Abita Purple Hazes, a bag of crawfish, lobster, corn, sausage, & potatoes brought us to food coma heaven. These iPhone pictures of course don't do it justice, so I encourage you to see this post with even better food porn pics.

This was basically a perfect NYC night and is an itinerary I would recommend to anyone!
