Drink: Springy Cashew
From: The Cashew
Price: $11 (2 for 1 on Mondays)
As per usual, a great deal brought me to this bar one night: two for one martinis. The Cashew (also the 2000 Grand) is a cute bar with loads of personality and local artwork. They have an entirely new menu, with a lot of house cocktails - including some intriguing ones with Lavender Water. The Springy Cashew has citrus vodka, St. Germain Liqueur, simple syrup, fresh lemon and a splash of cranberry juice. It's not too sweet, but has a lot of fruity and citrusy flavors. It was perfect for the warm night, cooled and served in fun tip-proof martini glasses. (The tall stemmed ones make me a bit nervous - I'm a klutz).
The drink: tart, citrusy, smooth, juicy.
Located in the always-fun Crossroads Arts District in downtown, this bar boasts a gorgeous bar, swivel chairs, and convenient sidewalk seating with a great view of downtown. If you're looking for variety and something new, check this place out.
