The Enlightenment

The Enlightenment Cocktail is either “the thinking man’s drink,” or “the poor mans champagne cocktail.” I can’t claim this drink as my own but I have drank it on several occasions and introduced it to my friends and they love it. This wonderful concoction was invented by Aidan Demarest while at the Edison in downtown Los Angeles, now owner of Neat in Glendale, CA. Aidan uses Woodford Reserve Bourbon and light beer to top it off. Enlightment
