|Hullabaloo mixologist Brett Collins uses topnotch ingredients to make his own "skinny" cocktails.|
If you're in the mood for a well-handcrafted cocktail this evening, head to Hullabaloo in West Palm Beach. Unlike most bars, here you won't find a single bottle of simple syrup -- and we think that says something. At this new Italian-themed gastropub, it's all about doing things from scratch -- and that includes the bar's "kitchen cocktail" menu lineup.
These days, everyone has latched onto the handcrafted cocktail bandwagon, but the ingredients used will be what sets one fancy menu apart from another. Rather than default to the standard ingredients found behind most bars -- the same used for making well drinks at two-for-one happy hours -- Hullabaloo mixologist Brett Collins has assembled an arsenal of high-end spirits and liqueurs to make flavorful, intense drinks with no artificial ingredients.
"All mixologists are being creative, coming up with their own infusions and creating some pretty amazing stuff lately," said Collins. "But there's one thing most of them still have in common. They're sill using simple syrup."See also:- First Look: Hullabaloo Opens on Clematis Street in West Palm Beach
