MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Every month, Mike Augustyniak goes in search of the newest hotspots in the Twin Cities, and learns the secrets behind their best cocktails.

The Whiskey Agreement is a mixed-base whiskey-lovers Old Fashioned-style cocktail, that might just remind you of a grown-up Long Island Iced Tea, too. Created by the world-renown bartenders at Death & Co. in New York and Denver, it’s an example of the types of drinks they’ll be serving at a “pop-up” bartending series at Constantine in Minneapolis this weekend.
