Critics, upstate: The solid beer list at Exchange on Market should not be discounted, but the Grays give Exchange high marks for its drink menu, “which offers unique blends of standard and exotic flavors,” says Harold. Best sellers include the Dark & Stormy, a Bermudian concoction of Gosling’s Black Seal rum and ginger beer; the double espresso martini; and the Key Lime margarita, a blend of Margaritaville Calypso Coconut tequila, pineapple and lime. The Seedless Watermelon, a combo of Bacardi watermelon, triple sec, cranberry and lime is worth a sip, as is the good ’ol Harvey Wallbanger. Says Gray, “The cocktails settle nicely on the palate and gently on the morning after.” (902 N. Market St., Wilmington, 576-9861)
