The Hawthorne is my absolute favorite cocktail bar in Boston. Try their whiskey sous (not with wretched sour mix, but really made with egg whites), or ask for some Fortaleza, neat (Hawthorne is maybe the only place I know of in the city that serves it). Honestly, just sit at the bar, trust your bartender, and go with what they recommend! I like to hit Hawthorne for a pre-dinner cocktail (and then pop over to Island Creek Oyster Bar), but the food at Hawthorne is pretty good, too. It's also a great spot for after dinner drinks, either with a group of friends, or 1:1 - it's lively, but not loud.
