Drink This Now: Butter Raisin Biscuit Cocktail at Double Chicken Please

Listed as #6 of the World’s 50 Best Bars, this outstanding chicken sandwich restaurant and whimsical cocktail bar is located in New York’s Lower East Side.  Just like the name, Double Chicken Please (DCP) offers two distinct hospitality experiences and a different cocktail menu in each space. 

The Front Room serves up an array of draft cocktails -labeled as numbers, in a casual, industrial environment while the Back Room, decked out in mid-century modern decor and lighting, boasts a rotating list of innovative and classic craft cocktails.

Head to the Back Room for this rich Butter Raisin Biscuit cocktail.

“The inspiration for the Butter Raisin Biscuit comes from my personal favorite tea biscuit by the same name, that is often enjoyed alongside a cup of Earl Grey tea. I’ve always been into the flavor of brandy, but since I don’t drink much alcohol, Pineau des Charentes is a gateway to it.”, imparts Gn Chan, Co-Founder at Double Chicken Please. 

“The Butter Raisin Biscuit signature cocktail on our menu is a flip concept, meaning the food & beverage components are flipped. You are effectively eating your Earl Grey tea and drinking your biscuit.”
