Cocktail Review–Mandarin Crush, Thai Cafe, DurhamPosted in : Bars and Tasting Rooms, Bars in Durham - NC on by : The Gourmez

The Mandarin Crush is a cherry brandy cocktail served in a martini glass with two cherries at the bottom. It resembles a golden and pink-tinged sunset, which certainly set me up to enjoy its flavors.
And enjoy it I did. The cocktail is mildly sweet with a bite from the brandy that I quite appreciated. It was the ideal amount of orange and cherry to combine with a hearty brandy. Will drink again, with pleasure.
The restaurant review will follow tomorrow!
