THE 100 LIST
THE 100 LIST debuted at Anvil a month or so after we opened the bar in March of 2009. Originally, this list of classic cocktails began as a laminated training guide for the bar staff - a minimal list of required cocktail recipes every bartender should know by heart. Our new staff was routinely seen studying this list of recipes when we opened, and frequently, guests would ask to see it. Eventually, we succumbed to their requests and added the list of classic cocktails to our printed menu. While the list has changed slightly over time as we occasionally rediscover lost classics, it has also become an iconic part of our bar and a wonderful way to explore the world of classic cocktails.
The 100 List is divided into the following sections to assist in the navigation of this extensive drinks collection. Our bar staff is also intimately familiar with each of these drinks and would gladly help match you with the right cocktail.
