I can't believe that I missed the HoCo Blogs event at Gadsby's Bar American last week -- especially now that I read the rave that Elizabeth wrote on The Bare Midriff about her cocktail.
Gadsby's is one several new places that we just haven't had time to try yet. I'd written before that they've hired Chad Spangler, a serious bartender trying to create a real name for the place among people who like cocktails.
Elizabeth loved the place and especially loved the drink that she got from Chad:
It was heavenly. Light and floral, but not cloyingly so. A hit of acid from the lemon, a smooth sweetness from the honey. It was just perfect. And of course it has me rethinking how I'm going to make my own lavender-gin cocktail.Check out the whole post on The Bare Midriff blog. Check out her links for more Vine videos like the one above or the one where Chad uses a blow torch to smoke a Manhattan.
