Mixology 101 is a new bar and lounge at the Farmer's Market. Headed up by mixologist Salvatore Calabrese, a veteran of several esteemed European bars, and Joseph Brooke, formerly of The Edison and America's Best Bartender of 2010, Mixology 101 boasts an extensive list of precisely-made cocktails, including classics like the Singapore Sling and a Vieux Carré, several champagne cocktails, and a bevy of martinis and after-dinner cocktails. Calabrese showed off his skills at a recent tasting and the results were impressive. One favorite, the Breakfast Martini, consists of Bombay Sapphire, Cointreau, fresh lemon juice, and an unexpected twist: a soupçon of orange marmalade. Also impressive: the Spicy Fifty, a delectable composition of Vanilla Stoli, elderflower cordial, fresh lime juice, honey syrup, and chili pepper. Bar bites include caprese sliders, crab and lobster cakes, and Tex-Mex eggrolls. The lounge, aloft on the second floor and with huge windows showcasing expansive views of The Grove and Farmer's Market, should serve well as both a popular destination bar and as an intoxicating respite after shopping.
