A speakeasy-themed bar, Montgomery Place is all you would expect: dark walls, low tables sparsely lit, and barmen dressed in black outfits and yellow suspenders. The cocktail menu might be a nod to the past, but the menu is any thing but bathtub gin, with a stunning list of more than 50 cocktails. With categories such as Acqua Vitae and Songs of Citrus, just choosing where to start can be a challenge. It is best to ask the bartenders, who know every drink by heart.
1. To a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add 2 oz gin, 1 tsp honey, ½ oz lemon juice and ½ oz fresh orange juice.
2. Shake and strain into a small Martini glass.
3. Garnish with an orange twist.
