Just two doors down, Eastern Standard boasts an excellent cocktail program and a full menu of bistro fare. "We love working with local craft distilleries that have found their voice and turn out a consistent product," Bar Manager Naomi Levy told me after shaking up their Kodiak Daiquiri, which gets its pale pink hue from a dash of Angostura bitters. With Privateer white rum from Ipswich, lime juice, Demerara syrup, cinnamon syrup, Angostura bitters, and absinthe, it's more complex than a traditional Daiquiri, but just as smooth. For a rum concoction that looks (and sips) more like a Manhattan, try the Ponce de Leon, which combines Berkshire Mountain Distilling's Ragged Mountain Rum, Lustau East India Sherry, Licor 43, and Regan's No. 6 orange bitters, and comes garnished with a burnt orange twist in a rocks glass.
