Ask For It – Couloir Accountraments

While the drinks at Couloir are undeniably good, the nuts they serve with them make them even better.  Paired by what liquor they go better with, these two varieties are both delicious. Start with one and switch to the other if you want to try them both! The drinks are well worth the trip up the gondola and the nuts will make sure the alcohol doesn’t get to your head too quickly.
