Harleston Village Italian restaurant Le Farfalle opened to much fanfare earlier this month, but one thing was missing — cocktails. While chef Michael Toscano showcased "various regions throughout Italy, as well as ingredients bountiful to the South" with small plates, seasonal vegetables, and pastas, patrons went without a stiff drink for almost eleven days. Le Farfalle did serve beer and wine however, so not all hopes for a buzz were lost.
The restaurant announced it finally received its liquor license about an hour ago, so the drinks will be flowing at dinner service tonight. Cocktails range from The Salty Ginger (rum, lemon, ginger, honey. and Carolina flake salt) to the Vertical Railroad (jalapeño-infused tequila, mezcal, lime, pineapple, orgeat, and cinnamon).
Take a gander at the full cocktail offerings here, and say hello to Sir Walter Raleigh.
