We've been going to Provision since it was living in a strip mall salon space on Gilbert Rd, south of the 202—not exactly the coolest spot on the planet. It was unassuming on the outside, but inside was this bizarro world of ridiculously refined coffee cocktails and a steady stream of people who looked like they belonged in fashion magazines. Sure, it only had three tables, a small bar, and a couch mostly occupied by salon patrons, but it was gold. Now they're all grown up in a spot that'd fit right in in NYC, SF, or Portland. Not that the Phoenix coffee scene is something to scoff at these days, but Provision really set the mark as to what good coffee should taste and look like. It's a little disarming when you walk into Provision and see a fully stocked cocktail setup. You think, "What's going on here? Should I be drinking right now?" The answer is a resounding yes. A few months back I got a Jungle Bird variation that had a delicious amaro with a butter-washed spiced rum, and it was so good I've been trying to recreate it ever since (which is a mistake, as we all know everything tastes better when someone else makes it). After my first few sips, I asked Dan how he came up with the recipe, and he said, in his usual unassuming way, "Well, the Jungle Bird is a delicious, balanced cocktail, and this was an obvious way to elevate it." Well, Dan, obvious to some is a mystical power to others, and I'll keep drinking your cocktails to learn your secrets.
