Forest Lane location. Bliss.
I took the hint and concentrated on my drinks (plural). Every week they'll make custom infused liquors, changed out based on what's in season and what customers and staff like. "It's like a do-it-yourself home-ec project," says owner Mariel Street. So naturally a flight of tasters was in order.
The jalapeÃ±o watermelon tequila sent the familiar tequila tingle up my spine and left behind a pleasant burn. And I fairly pounded a taster of the cucumber gin with a splash of soda. It was so refreshing I could pretend it was a health elixir. I dig the concept of custom
cocktails and special liquors that still taste like real fruit and real alcohol--not the sickeningly sweet flavored crap I used to think was dope back in my college days. This is foodie vodka.
Coming up, they'll sell flights of their liquor infusions and introduce a pumpkin liquor for the cooler months. Right now they're debating between vodka and rum. I voted for rum and told them to add some nice earthy spices (you're welcome). Also in the works: fried
green tomato topped burger and a chili burger. And for those of you that fell in love with the house dressings that may or may not contain angel tears, they'll start selling bottles of their house made Liberty mustard, Chipotle ketchup and hot sauce on their website in the next few weeks.
