Buttermilk & Bourbon

So, this place is incredible. The cocktails are delicious - try the "Garden District" (Maker's, berry & honey syrup, lemon, & ginger beer).

Also, this place specializes in small plates, so find a few things you like and order them while you have your drinks. You will love what gets put down in front of you, trust me.

Citrus & Salt Boston

Citrus & Salt Boston

Boasting perhaps the coolest decor in all of Boston, Citrus & Salt will make you feel fancy. Their cocktail list will also make you feel warm. 

I recommend going the tequila route here - try the margarita because you have to, but also give the "Take Your Pants Off" a shot.
