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.

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

Pirate’s Punch Sunset Grille-Cary Harrison Pointe Shopping Center Cary The Pirate’s Punch is, of course, a rum drink.  With pirate in the name, you wouldn’t expect any other base, would you?  This was good old Captain Morgan, mixing it up with some amaretto and pineapple juice.  The flavors were disparate but that was fine; it
