Bourbon Brothers botches drinks, does fine chicken and waffles


  • Griffin Swartzell
Bourbon Brothers, formerly Southern Hopitality, formerly Bourbon Brothers, has moved back into the hands of JW Roth (CEO of Roth Premium Foods) and his wife. When last we visited, we found issues at the bar. A half-hour delay on two drinks shows that hasn’t changed. Our Loveland Mule ($9) pairs Loveland-distilled Spring 44 gin with ginger beer, lemon and raspberries. The ginger’s got bite, and it’s not too sweet, but it’d be better if the raspberries were muddled. A Vieux Carre ($12), consisting of Bulleit rye, Cognac, bitters, Carpano Antica vermouth, and Benedictine (aka, all booze, served neat) should have punch. It should not have a thin, watered-down mouthfeel and the kick of a kitten. Our chicken and waffles ($18) does have enough fried bird and waffle to satisfy two. The seasoning on the chicken’s nice and the Belgian waffle’s good. A little hot sauce wouldn’t hurt, but the maple syrup and butter do fine.
