Absente Minded Posta Tuscan Grille, Raleigh Website $12 The Absente Minded cocktail, which I tried at the Triangle Foodie Tweetup held last week at Posta Tuscan Grille, was a delightful, satisfying, smooth cocktail.

Basil Smash Foundation Downtown Raleigh http://www.foundationnc.com/ The Basil Smash was a mix of Old Charter No. 8 bourbon, lemon juice, and basil syrup.  The basil was spicy, which means it was probably locally sourced as both my homegrown carrots and basil plants are extra spicy in NC. The basil gave way to sugar and mellow

Yadkin Valley Summer Sangria Foundation Downtown Raleigh Website As I’ve had my heat on for three weeks now, I’m sure Foundation no longer has this on their drink list, but figured I’d go ahead and post it anyway to give you a taste of what they mix up. This riff on white sangria was made

If you have both a sweet and spicy tooth, as I do, this cocktail is fantastic. It is made with passion fruit vodka, muddled jalapenos, honey, cilantro and something else I didn’t write down. The spiciness makes your throat tingle but the sweetness makes you forget all about it.

Bee’s Knees The Hive Downtown Raleigh Website I love a good bourbon cocktail so this drink called my name.  It’s comprised of bourbon, muddled pineapple, honey, soda water and rosemary.    Sadly, the alluring components did little to jazz up the bourbon; it would have been better merely served on the rocks.  The pineapple was diluted

Hendrick’s in the Garden The Raleigh Times Bar http://www.raleightimesbar.com/ This cocktail was a mix of cucumber chunks, lavender syrup, gin, and club soda on the rocks.  The strong, yet bland gin quickly took control from the cucumber and sweet lavender.  It’s rare that I want the gin in a drink to be more flavorful but
