Best New Cocktail Bar


Ask any truly fine bartender around town which Tucson bars are making the top drinks these days, and you’ll hear a variety of responses. Some will say the sister properties of Hotel Congress and Maynards Market and Kitchen. Others will point southwest toward Casino del Sol. Of course, many will cite our Best Cocktail Menu champ, Scott and Co. Finally, a fair number will mention a cocktail bar barely a year old—the one at Wilko. Check out a recent Wilko cocktail of the week, “The Cosmic Boxer”: It is a mix of aged Old Tom gin, vermouth di Torino, kummel, eucalyptus honey and lemon oil. Now that’s delicious creativity.
