Puma Yu’s is an ever-evolving brick and mortar with a cocktail and wine bar serving unique creations inspired by Southeast-Asian food and drink. The bar program lead, Ally Smith, created Puppy Brother with sophistication and simplicity in mind. This citrusy cocktail features Japenese Etsu gin and vermouth. The Lemon Spray gives a slightly sour taste, perfectly blending with the orange bitters and the herbal Accompani Flora Green liqueur for a well balanced drink.
