I know we just had a bank holiday on Monday, but this week is still dragging the life out of me.
It's just one of those never ending ones. I can see the weekend off in the distance, but like Father Dougal before me I can't tell if it's small, or just far away. I feel we need a little midweek treat to get us that bit closer to the finish line. How does a round up of the tastiest new cocktails to try in Dublin sound? Let's get into it.
1. "Boston Tea Party" from Le Perroquet
A classy looking lil fella with American bourbon, darjeeling tea liquor, Boston bitters and caramelised green tea gelee. One for the historians among us.
2. Cocktail Jugs from Lucky's
Your choice of sangria, pimms or margarita in a jug to enjoy with pals. Picturing a cold one of these in the Lucky's beer garden is curing me rn.
3. "Prossecolada" from Opium
Come on now everyone, sing it with me! "If you like piña coladas, and prosecco as well"... or something along those lines. Add a bit of spritz to a fruity classic with this fizzy delight from Opium.
4. Mocha Martini from Whelans
Sure while you're on Wexford Street you may as well poke the head into Whelans, especially since they're now doing food and cocktails! The times, they are a changin'. If you're an espresso martini queen you'll love this creation with all the elements of your usual caffeinated fave, and a dash of dark chocolate too. Swipe across to see the rest of their stunning cocktail menu - the raspberry and almond Tom Collins in particular sounds immense.
5. "Dublin Julep" from Riot
Riot's tasty twist on the classic Mint Julep. I would also definitely go for a Basic Bitch. No idea what it is but I'm just assuming I'd be into it.
Well, I don't know about you guys but I feel better already. I'm off to try and find some mates to work my way through this list with.
Please drink responsibly.
