“Town & Desert, the original name of one of our favorite local mid-modern hangouts (orbit in’s hideaway). White whiskey, solerno blood orange liqueur, lemon and egg white bring vintage Palm Springs to mind with its abundant citrus, bright flavors and creamy texture.” $10 Workshop Kitchen + Bar, Palm Springs CA
I was really impressed by the cocktails at Workshop. They were expertly made and while not all of them agreed with me in flavor, I appreciated the thoughtful ingredients they used to make these concoctions.
“Ward 8, rye, house made grenadine, fresh lemon and orange juices, originating in Boston around the turn of the 20th century and named after a notoriously corrupt voting district; fortunately for us the political corruption of yesteryear is virtually extinct (insert big wink here). However, this drink is as delicious and morally in debt as it ever was.” $10
Old fashioned with Eagle rare single barrel 10 year bourbon. $10
This was a fun sushi roll with lots of textures. I’ve never had a roll with melted fresh mozzarella before so that was different. It was warm and creamy and the fried onions gave it more flavor and crunch. I think the sauce was sriracha based and spicy. Very good!
I liked the flavor of this cocktail and I thought that the chipped ice was fun, but there is WAY too much sugar on that rim! It made the drink way too sweet and difficult to taste anything else. Sweet lady bartender though!
I enjoyed these cocktails at Fish & Farm but I don’t think they were worth $12 a pop. You can get delicious, more intricate cocktails and other places for less money. And you’ll get larger pours! Fish & Farm, San Francisco
