Drink of the Week: Old Golden at Ramen Shop

The First & Last Cocktail

When I visited Ramen Shop last year, I was impressed: straight out of the gate and without any official bar manager, this restaurant was producing some fantastic drinks. Now that Chris Lane is at the helm, the drinks are even better.

Playing off the herbal qualities in mezcal, Lane's Old Golden ($10, mezcal, sage, lemon, honey, ginger) is a great example of what he's doing over there: making great drinks without falling into the trap of forcing everything into tasting “Japanese.” They're just damn good.
