Damon Boelte at Beretta and Delarosa

When: Beretta on Tue., Feb. 22, 5:30 p.m.-1 a.m.; Delarosa on Wed., Feb. 23, :30 p.m.-1 a.m.

Where: Beretta, 1199 Valencia (at 23rd St.), 695-1199 ; Delarosa, 2175 Chestnut (at Pierce), 673-7100

Cost: All special cocktails, $10

The rundown: Beretta's guest bartender series continues (and kicks off at sibling Delarosa) with barman Damon Boelte of Brooklyn's celebrated Prime Meats ― an excellent opportunity to try some of Boelte's cocktails in venues where you can actually sit at the bar. If you're nice, maybe he'll make his best-known drink, the Good Word, Boelte's interpretation of a Last Word with gin, Chartreuse, maraschino liqueur, and lime juice.

Cocktail highlights: Setenta y Cinco (tequila, lemon, Creme de Violette, prosecco); the Swank (Old Tom gin, sweet vermouth, Fernet Branca, apricot brandy); Applejack Sazerac (apple brandy, maple, Absinthe, bitters); Italian Fizz (Carpano Antica, Fernet Branca, seltzer)
