Into craft cocktails?
Check out Volume One's Craft of Cocktails special section - with articles and info about the local craft cocktail scene.
Bartenders at The Lakely (516 Galloway St., Eau Claire) create their cocktails with bold flavors and an artist’s attention, Don’t miss a menu mainstay, the Great Grampa (poll voters’ favorite), which is enjoyed best in a flannel next to the fireplace. Infinity Beverages Winery & Distillery (3460 Mall Drive, Eau Claire) crafts some of the most solid cocktails in town, thanks to their expertly distilled spirits and handmade mix-ins. Make sure to hit up Dive (333 Gibson St., Eau Claire) in the summer when they use fresh herbs from their garden to create crisp concoctions best enjoyed on their rooftop patio. — Katy Hackworthy
