Black and Blue Martini at Blend Lounge
Each week "Cheers, Westchase!" helps you kick off your weekend, highlighting either a beer, cocktail or wine you can find right here in the neighborhood.
This week, we said enough with the wine -- and headed to Blend Lounge for a brightly-colored cocktail that will help get you through the mid-week monotony.
Enter the Black and Blue Martini. In the mix? Grey Goose L'Orange vodka, made from freshly picked oranges. Essential orange oils from the fresh fruit are mixed with wheat spirit and distilled to achieve the signature vibrant citrus flavor. Add some Chambord Liquer, Blue Curacao, equal parts sour mix and cranberry juice and you've got yourself one delicious beverage. Tart, sweet and garnished with a sugar rim, this is a must-try martini and perfect for a ladies' night out.
When choosing the perfect food pairing for this cocktail, the sky's the limit -- because when you're hanging at Blend, you can easily order delivery from many of the area restaurants, including Zen, Tijuana Flats, Pizza Fusion and more.
Blend is a great local spot for Westchasers because it has a little bit of everything: outdoor seating and bar, a chic lounge with small tables and a full bar, shuffleboard, plenty of drink specials, late-night dancing...what's not to like?!
