The Basil Lemontini, the Poste Cocktail with a Cult Following, Makes a Comeback

Missy Frederick is the Cities Director for Eater.

You can't keep a good cocktail down.

Poste had attempted to retire one of its longtime patio cocktails, the Basil Lemontini, back in April. After all, the drink had been around as long as the restaurant itself. It didn't work.

Since taking it off the menu, the restaurant has logged a total of 435 orders of the drink, despite the fact it isn't listed. Since the public has spoken, the restaurant is bringing the drink back, as of today. It's $12, and available on tap on the patio.
