Time Out — 13 Summer Cocktails
Free Rider at the Whistler
The tiki revival comes to life at this music venue/cocktail bar once every other month (next: August 19) with tropical-retro cocktails. The bar also features a weekly-changing tiki drink on its everyday menu. Co-owner Billy Helmkamp created this original, available any time by request, which gives Lemon Hart 151 Demerara Rum and pineapple juice an herbal kick via Benedictine, Fernet and a fragrant mint sprig garnish. $12.—Julia Kramer
