Mandarin Crush Thai Cafe 2501 University Drive Durham http://www.thaicafenc.com 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

Flirtini West 94th Street Pub Woodcroft Shopping Center Durham This cocktail came with an unappealing pink film on top, but that is often the case for drinks made with crème de anything.  This one was crème de banane and its compatriots in the martini glass were watermelon pucker and vodka.  I tend to stay away

The Alex Martini George’s Garage *CLOSED* Durham, NC This drink proves that apple martinis don’t have to hit you over the head with sugar. It came garnished with an orange slice and topped with foam, which I love. It was the color of sparkling cider but a bit murky so that I wondered if it

French Kiss Martini City Beverage 4810 Hope Valley Road Durham, NC This libation is a mix of vodka, chambord, pineapple, and lemon peel. It’s a slightly different recipe than the classic French Kiss but tastes just like that standard—a favorable level of sweetness, but overall, somewhat dull. Brightly deep red in color but the taste
