Lemontini @ the OxfordPosted in : Bars and Tasting Rooms, Bars in Raleigh - NC, Champagne / Champenoise Style on by : The Gourmez
The Oxford (My Review)
The lemontini at the Oxford is made with Absolut citron, limoncello, champagne, and sour mix. It wants to be a sophisticated take on the lemon drop, but I must give the lemon drop the edge because this lemontini does not have enough sour citrus to give it the depth I demand from a drink. The earthy and floral champagne notes peak my interest, but they dilute the lemon tartness that should star.
It goes down too easily to rise high in my rankings.
