Good morning, and happy Friday! I hope your week has zoomed by! Who’s ready for the weekend?
I recently went to SubZero Vodka Bar with a few friends.
It’s a cute little bar in the Central West End. It was a beautiful day, so we sat out on the patio. I wasn’t terribly hungry, so I started with a Bacon Bloody Mary:
This baby was made with bacon flavored vodka, and was even garnished with a strip of bacon! Genius.
I loved this drink, but after about halfway through, I had had enough. Too much of a good thing? Maybe.
I definitely wasn’t intending on ordering anything to eat, but just out of curiosity, I flipped through the menu. Look what I found!
Do you see what I see? Banana Vodka Bread Pudding? Say it isn’t so! I had to order this. Obviously.
It was a generous portion, and it looked tasty enough.
However, this was a huge let down. It tasted very spongey, and not in a good way! I wasn’t a fan of the golden raisins that were dispersed throughout, and I couldn’t taste even the slightest hint of banana!
The excellent service made up for the horrible bread pudding, however. The waiter noticed that I wasn’t a fan of my dessert, and he took it off my bill! Nice. Thank you!
I would definitely come back to SubZero to sample more from their menu, and perhaps order another bacon bloody mary – this time in a smaller glass, perhaps?
See you next week!
