My love of fine cocktails is well documented in this blog. I adore cocktails made with fine cognac infused with fresh cherries …
Any cocktail made by Scott Beattie, like this beautifully garnished mai tai.
Often I’m lucky enough to enjoy a glass of some truly world-class wine, like this oustanding 30-year-old Chateau Climens Sauternes, which I drank a week ago after Thanksgiving dinner.
But this week I’m in Houston, and they do things a little differently here.
Yep, you read that correctly: $1.25 for a margarita. Add 75 cents for “flavor.” I don’t even want to know. I was informed by my dinner companions tonight, who apparently visit this place weekly, that until a few weeks ago the drinks were only $1.00.
Were they great drinks? No, of course not. Can I make a better drink without breaking a sweat? I like to think so.
But did I drink three of them?
Why yes. Yes I did.
