Bar Talent at its Best: Kindred’s The Monk & the Arsonist

Kindred's The Monk & the Arsonist

Kindred’s bar is gorgeous. We love the design — honestly, the aesthetic of the entire restaurant is on another level — but this marble majesty would have little capacity to entertain without cocktail wizard Blake Pope behind it. His concoctions never disappoint, and Kindred’s available menu of 7-or-so cocktails is just the tip of the chipped-iceberg. Try one of his alchemical masterworks, like the pillar of complexity that is The Monk & the Arsonist, and revel in a nightlife you didn’t know Davidson could offer.

1 oz Tequila
1 oz Mezcal
¾ oz Lime
½ oz Yellow Chartreuse
½ oz Aperol
½ oz Agave
Pinch of Kosher Salt

In a shaker, combine all ingredients with ice, shake and strain into an ice-filled Collins glass. Garnish with a lime wheel.
