Catalyst's New Cocktail Menu Channels Tom Waits and Greek Philosophers

By
After a few drinks, you too might sound like Tom Waits.

In an era where most cocktails are named after sex acts or annoying celebrities, here's a welcome change: Catalyst's new cocktail list is inspired by Tom Waits and dead Greek guys. Coffee and Cigarettes, a mix of Balcones Brimstone, Overholt Rye, Meletti, Fernet, Bitters, and Harpoon Triunfo Porter, was inspired by the Tom Waits movie (it's also a favorite breakfast treat of sommelier Jason Kilgore.) The Torch of Heraclitus, meanwhile, is named for an ancient Greek philosopher who loved fire. See the new, full cocktail list ahead!
