The Spike TV show "Bar Rescue" stopped at two Old Market bars Thursday night. But it wasn't to give them an extreme makeover.
The Berry & Rye and Wilson & Washburn were both picked as two area bars that are doing it right.
"Bar Rescue's" crew filmed Berry & Rye's bartenders making cocktails, with bartender Luke Edson showing them how to make the Debonair Pear, a flaming, foamy cocktail made with honey, lemon and egg white foam, Bombay Sapphire and green chartreuse.
The crew also filmed bartender Allison Hunt making the Trinidad Smoke, a drink made with Zaya, a 12-year-aged rum, and tobacco syrup, as well as cinnamon and clove bitters. The drink is served with aromatic pipe tobacco and Berry & Rye's signature spherical ice cube.
"Bar Rescue" crews also stopped at Wilson & Washburn to check out bartender Alex P. Nelson making the Dirty Wicked, a cocktail made with cold-brew coffee, Bulleit Bourbon, simple syrup and bitters.
The Spike TV show filmed an episode at O'Banion's in Bellevue earlier this month.
