Sun Liquor


607 Summit Ave. E.,
United States,

While house-crafted mixers have become standard-issue at many trendy lounges, Sun Liquor raises the bar by having its own distillery (located on Pike Street). The signature spirit, the Hedge Trimmer, is an American gin, the base for a classic martini or gimlet. The Capitol Hill bar itself is eccentric, with a tiki-lounge-meets-vintage-Chinatown theme. There's not a lot to eat, aside from a burger and fries, or daily specials like a BLT. The focus here is definitely on the cocktails, such as the Greenwich Sour, a combination of rye, lemon, and Cointreau, with a floating halo of Malbec.
