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

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

The Whippet Jujube http://www.jujuberestaurant.com Jujube’s bartenders definitely know how to make a good cocktail.  The whippet is a gem of a drink with Finlandia grapefruit-flavored vodka, Cava, and lychee juice.    It looked like a Lemon Drop minus the sugary rim, an elegant, white gold drink with an ice shard layer that I love.  The taste

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
