Bitter Blues at Nighthawk: Breakfast Bar

If you haven’t’ yet been to Venice’s Nighthawk: Breakfast Bar, you are seriously missing out. The theme is all things breakfast, including Breakfast Burger and brandy-infused French Toast along with cocktails like spiked cereal milk (Cinnamon Toast Crunch and spiced rum, anyone?)

But we are loving on the Bitter Blues, a blueberry jam, bourbon, and bitters cocktail, which pairs perfectly with the spot’s breakfast-forward menu.

“Growing up my French mother made homemade jam,” explains Jeremy Fall, Owner of Nighthawk: Breakfast Bar. “I wanted to create something unique that paid homage to my French and American heritage.”
