Vera Part 1

The Beast of Bourbon

Vera Logo

We at Abino Mills recently went on a field trip to Vera Pizzeria at 220 Lexington Avenue, Buffalo, NY.  Vera has been instrumental in bringing the craft cocktail to the Western New York area and has done so with a vengeance.  Adam and the guys conjured up some fantastic drinks in our glassware.  This is not the best way to improve my productivity for the rest of the day but sacrifices have to be made.

We will be showcasing a cocktail a week for the next few so keep checking back.


Beast of Bourbon:


Bird Dog Bourbon

St George Spiced Pear
