Arunas Bruzas at Acadia
Only real drinkers and bartenders understand this unwritten, bespoken rule of imbibing: Just as important as how a drink tastes is often how it is made. The “artist” executing the Michael Simon-designed cocktail program at Acadia is worth the price of admission if there was a fee to enter. Watching this cocktail sensei make a “Posh Paloma” or a signature “Speechless” is like watching Joakim Noah ball. The beauty is all in the passion. And the drinks taste amazing too.
