Cocktail of the month: The Cordelia at Other Mama

The Cordelia
Brent Holmes
/

“By all these lovely tokens, September days are here,” poet Helen Hunt Jackson once mused, probably while sitting at the bar in Other Mama, and by “these lovely tokens” surely meaning a flight of iced oysters and, especially, the elegant Cordelia. Other Mama kept the Cordelia off of its menu during the hot months — this suave drink doesn’t readily comport with summer’s demand for friskier cocktails. The Cordelia does not quench. Now it’s back for fall, its robust orange-and-cinnamon bourbon, honey and lemon (which, btw, richly demonstrates the role aroma plays in a drink’s satisfaction) perfectly delivering the message of September: Retire your flip-flops and beach reads; time to get real again. The Cordelia makes it easy. Scott Dickensheets
