In addition to the outstanding food, Carlos, the best bartender/bar manager, serves some great wine and makes some pretty amazing drinks. He also does tastings, which feature a different spirit (so far, there's been tequila, rum, bourbon, scotch, and vodka). For the tastings, Carlos comes up with a special cocktail menu showcasing that spirit. The most recent one was vodka. Here's the menu:
Looks great, right? Did you catch the name of the second drink? If not . . .
Yep, that's right. Carlos named a drink after my blog! Of course, it has all of my favorite things in it. It was delicious! So there's only one conclusion -- we are at the bar at Mockingbird way too much, or my blog is amazing. Maybe it's a little bit of both! :)
If you are in Houston, you should definitely stop by . . . whether it be for some food and drinks at the bar or a fancier sit-down dinner. We have never been disappointed -- and that's saying a lot since we go there all the time. The service, the atmosphere, the food and the drinks are always impressive.
