Favorites: The Roosevelt’s Smith Cross Road cocktail

The Smith Cross Road cocktail ($9) at The Roosevelt is a coupe full of Virginia warmth to complement a crisp fall evening. Named for a road familiar to bartender T. Leggett, the drink incorporates Virginia cider and apple brandy. Haitian rhum provides more warmth, maple syrup adds a complex sweetness, and lemon cuts brightly through the sugar. All of the ingredients are united by the toasty and earthy notes of black walnut bitters. Grab one (or two) after work before the bar fills up.
