Bars in the village don’t usually put much effort into the drinks list—not when there’s a drag revue desperate to meet Liza’s standards. It’s different at Smith, a comparatively sedate resto-bar with a tiny lounge upstairs for weekend DJ nights. The cocktail list is short and perfect. At the outset of winter, it included a seemingly innocent smash ($12) of whole cranberries, lime juice and ginger spiked with shots of apple-flavoured schnapps and gin. The Millionaire’s Cocktail ($13) is a fancy froth of bourbon, Grand Marnier, pastis, citrus, egg white and a dash of nutmeg.
