The frozen-avocado cocktail at Macondo was a critics pick in our recent Where to Drink guide, and now mixologist Amaury Robayo has a summer special thats as good as it is experimental: Pisco Ocucaje, kiwi, chopped celery, and absinthe topped with a creamy melon-rum foam that seeps into the icy liquid. At $9, the special is a couple dollars more than house cocktails, but with all the crudits in there, its like an app and a drink in one.
