Happy Hour: Plat 99, Sangiovese, And More

Where and what you’ll find us drinking this weekend.

Post-pasta limoncello sippers at Iozzo’s Garden of Italy (946 S. Meridian St., 317-974-1100), which makes the sweet, slightly chilled liqueur in house.

The spicy but smooth Aperol Margarita at Sangiovese Ristorante (2727 E. 86th St., 317-757-5913). Chili salt on the rim and habanero frozen in the ice cube bring the heat while hints of honey mellow the flavors.

This margarita from Sangiovese with an habanero ice cube is a surprising warm-up as temperatures fall.

The French Kynection at Spoke & Steele (123 Illinois St., 317-737-1616), a stress-melting combination of locally distilled West Fork Colonel bourbon and thyme-infused agave sweetened with mild, herbal yellow Chartreuse and a candied lemon slice.

Spoke & Steele uses locally-produced West Fork Whiskey in its French Kynection.

Plat 99 (333 S. Delaware St., 317-624-8200) offers its Signature Old-Fashioned made with a private selection of Russell’s Reserve 10-year-old bourbon, housemade demerara syrup, and Plat 99 house orange bitters.
