Each week, we order the same cocktail at two different bars for a friendly head-to-head battle.

Wigle Tasting Room and Bottle Shop

530 William Penn Place, Downtown

Drink: Pittsburgh Pêche

Ingredients: Wigle Monongahela Rye, peach ginger beer, lime, aromatic bitters

Our take: Flavors of lime and peach elegantly intertwine to make this drink floral, creamy and refreshing. The ginger beer contributes a significant kick that complements the warm notes of peach on the nose. 

Vs.

Eleven

1150 Smallman St., Strip District

Drink: Eleven Mules

Ingredients: Effen Cucumber vodka, Fever Tree ginger beer, lime, cucumber

Our take: This more classic mule is perfectly balanced with verdant cucumber notes and cooling lime. Ginger beer adds the impression of heat without being overwhelming.
