CAFE DE FLORE #TGIFToast
Rocket Room is one of my favorite watering holes. The food from Stella next door is always good, the drinks are creative and consistent and the music always keeps me happy. Last night, I hosted an event called Back to the 90's, which happens every first Thursday of the month (shameless plug, haha!) and my go to is usually wine or this wine cocktail called A Very Passionate Affair, which has a vanilla vodka, passion fruit liqueur and topped off with sparkling wine. I looked at their menu last night and noticed they had some new drinks! Not one to travel too far outside my favorites, I found one with Creme de Cassis (used in my MOST favorite drink in the world-KIR ROYALE) elderflower and lemon with a gin (or vodka, argh sorry I got tipsy and forgot!) base.
The drink was nice and light, but effective. It kind of reminded me of a cosmopolitan but more sophisticated and the one complaint i have (and only because i drink a lot) is that I wish there was more of the drink in each order. If you are into girly drinks, this one is for you. It's something you can sip on and for those with a low tolerance, it might be enough to give you a nice, happy buzz.
ROCKET ROOM is located at GF Bonifacio High street Central, 7th avenue cor 30th street, BGC
Back to the 90's hosted by The Powder Room every first THURSDAY of the month
