COCKTAIL CIRCUITFood GPS chats with Absinthe bar manager Jeff Hollinger. In addition to declaring that he is indeed a mixologist, Hollinger also shares a few details on his upcoming Comstock Saloon: "Rather than have a cocktail list that is three or four pages long and 30 cocktails deep [like Absinthe], we’ll have a list that’s somewhere between five and 10 cocktails, the majority of those are classics, but also be able to tailor a cocktail around what you want or what we’re experimenting with at the time. [GPS]
