Have you ever had a cocktail? No, I mean a REAL cocktail – the kind made in the Roaring Twenties, when the bartender could whip up an Old Fashioned Gimlet without Googling its ingredients. Today, Cincinnati bar-goers can get their Jazz Aged Sidecars and the Blackberry Brambles at the newly resurrected Japp’s on Main where Molly Wellmann, co-owner and ever-so-lovely damsel of drink, knows how to make a cocktail good enough to make Clara Bow blush (Clara Bow was a famous flapper/Hollywood starlet from the 1920’s). Here is a link to the full article in my column – Cincy Chic‘s Vine + Table.
In the next post I’ll feature the back of the bar, where Tazza Mia‘s Bob Bonder brews up your evening espresso with a splash of absinthe.
