Lil Snickers


Lil Snickers, a cocktail that reminds us to never take ourselves too seriously, features a locally sourced Snickers Mini garnish that’s foraged from the Rite Aid across the street from the bar at Wet City. Some people, when reading a cocktail menu, might feel that ingredients like Cardamaro or Capaletti Apertivo might be a tad pretentious. However, throw a Snickers Mini into the mix and whammo you have one hell of an approachable and humorous drink for the masses.  And that’s why Lil Snickers has been one of Wet City’s longest running cocktails. That and it’s a damn good drink. Photo above by Nomtastic Foods.


  • 1 1/2 oz Ritenhouse rye
  • 3/4 oz Cardamaro
  • 1/2 oz Capaletti Apertivo
  • 6 drops of mole bitters
  • locally sourced Mini Snickers

Add all the ingredients except the garnish to your mixing glass. Add ice and stir. Strain ingredients into your cocktail glass over a large ice cube. Skewer the Mini Snickers and place over the glass.

This cocktail also bottles well!
