Spirits of the Lowcountry
Last night I went to Muse, one of my favorite wine bars in downtown Charleston. Of course I went for a glass of wine but the nice folks next to us recommended the concoction pictured above. This cocktail featured cayenne vodka, creme de cacao, and lots of basil. Spicy chocolate? Yes please!
We talked to the bartender about the current trend in "mixology" in Charleston. I won't disagree, in the past month I have tried the Blackberry Imperial Fizz at The Gin Joint and the Monkey Gland at the Husk. Who knew gin could taste so good?
What are your thought on fancy cocktails? Do you like to try something new, or do you stick with a trusty glass of wine?
