Drink of the Week

Blood Orange Mojito

What is it? It is what it sounds like, a mojito (rum, sugar, lime, mint, etc.) plus blood orange juice (or maybe grapefuit juice, I don’t know, I’m going off the title here).

Where is it? Pacific Kitchen, that place you’ve seen the signs for in Inman Park, around Elizabeth and Highland, and said to yourself, “Yeah, okay, I’ve seen the sign, but where the hell is it?” Answer: It’s a block north of Highland and east of Elizabeth, right by the park. Nice spot, in what feels like an expanded and modernized house (with super-high ceilings) and a quiet patio that gets its greenery from the Inman Park running trails near Freedom Parkway.

How was it? Very good. Smooth, a little more tart than lime alone, with lots of fresh mint. If I was really smart, though, I’d have bought a regular mojito for comparison, ’cause it didn’t seem so different.

How much? $10

(Note: I’m stealing this idea from a friend of mine, to give me an excuse to, uh, drink more. Trouble is, I’m not that well versed in cocktails or, more accurately, what they should cost, so I’ll be doing more reporting and less grading here until I’ve logged more cocktails. Drinks often won’t be posted the same week they’re drunk.)
