Arrowhead Limited

Damon Boelte, Grand Army Bar | Brooklyn, NY

Childhood memories of trains and searching for arrowheads in Oklahoma and Texas bring to mind bitter flavors and mezcal for Damon Boelte. Ever a lover of combining beer with bitters, Boelte tops this “mezcal Negroni” with IPA for a smoky and bitter, yet refreshing long drink. Part of the opening menu at Boelte’s Grand Army Bar in Brooklyn, the drink is named for a train that used to run from Wisconsin to Minnesota in the 1970s.
