La Leche @ Dos Perros (Durham)

Posted in : Bars and Tasting Rooms, Bars in Durham - NC on by : becca
Tags: , , , , , , , ,

La Leche Dos Perros, Downtown Durham Website $9 This drink is nothing but horchata and dark rum. I love both of those ingredients, but I have to say, for $9, it wasn’t tasty enough. It’s a classic milk punch, like the New Orlean’s Milk Punch at Papa Mojo’s with bourbon and nutmeg, but that one

Southern Tea Blu Seafood and Bar Website My restaurant review Sorry, no pictures of this one. I really need to stop ordering iced tea cocktails as I’ve yet to be impressed by one, other than ye olde Long Island Iced Tea of course. I’m impressed by Firefly sweet tea vodka, mind you, but it’s better

Beyu Express (Beyu Caffee, Durham)—Cocktail Review

Posted in : Bars and Tasting Rooms, Bars in Durham - NC on by : becca
Tags: , , , , , , ,

Beyu Express Beyu Caffee, Downtown Durham Website $6.75 My picture does not do this drink justice. It’s a martini made with chilled espresso, butterscotch, coffee and chocolate liquors, and milk. Fantastic, a perfect blend of flavors. The butterscotch was used sparingly, providing only an occasional hint of its presence, while the espresso was top notch,

Hawaiian Punch West 94th Street Pub Woodcroft, Durham Website This drink, with its bloody trail of maraschino juice, looks like it’d be great for a Halloween party. It’s made with vodka, Malibu coconut rum, pineapple juice, and more than a splash of blue curacao. It’s a great, simple tropical punch, perfect for sipping on a

Passion Fruit Sunrise @ Nantucket Cafe (Durham) — Cocktail Review

Posted in : Bars and Tasting Rooms, Bars in Durham - NC on by : becca
Tags: , , , , ,

Passion Fruit Sunrise Nantucket Café, Durham Website This attractive swirled drink was made with mango juice, pomegranate juice, and Absolut Peach. There was much more of an alcohol punch than I expected, but I suspect that’s because I’d just told the bartender that I liked strong drinks before ordering it. It was sweet, but also

Moscow Mule @ City Beverage (Durham)

Tags: , , , , ,

Moscow Mule City Beverage Woodcroft, Durham http://www.citybeverage-durham.com/ This drink was a mix of vodka, ginger ale, and lime served on the rocks in a short glass. The ginger ale and lime combined well with each other and with food. The vodka was undetectable, which is fine since vodka isn’t supposed to have much of a

Cocktail Review–Nantucket Margarita (Durham)

Nantucket Margarita Nantucket Cafe and Grill Sutton Station, Durham www.nantucketcafeandgrill.com Wow, the Sauza tequila comes out strong in this margarita.  So does the house sweet and sour blend.  It’s really, really sour.  I can’t pick out the Grand Marnier but that’s probably because my mouth is too busy puckering due to the lemon juice.  If

Pineapple Upside-Down Caketini West 94th Street Pub Woodcroft Durham www.west94stpub.com This cantaloupe-colored martini is made with Stoli vanilla vodka, Malibu rum, pineapple juice, and cream.  It is absolutely delicious and tastes exactly like you are eating a slice of pineapple upside-down cake, complete with the caramelized pineapple wedges. Sometimes, there is truth in advertising. Reviewed

Cancun Cocktail Bandido’s Mexican Café Woodcroft, Durham http://www.bandidoscafe.com The Cancun Cocktail, served in a hurricane glass, is the color of a salmon fillet.  Unappetizing description aside, it’s a great drink with dark rum, peach schnapps; orange, pineapple and papaya juices.  Peach schnapps would overpower a lighter base but it serves to mellow out the dark
