First stop on the birthday parade was Avenue 5 in Banker’s Hill.  Upon arriving at the bar and surveying the drink menu there was really only one choice to make – The King’s Cocktail!  That number one in the picture is for drink number one of… many.

  • Vodka
  • Blood Orange Reduction
  • Orange Liqueur

Dave’s Thoughts:

  • Continuing the theme of orange drinks for the start of the evening!
  • The drink has the distinct flavor of orange as you would expect, but is missing something.  It’s like it is missing the punch of the orange.  Perhaps it just lacks the sweetness you come to expect with the taste of orange.
  • Interestingly I tried a couple of other cocktails at the bar, and while each had a different starring ingredient, they all were missing the same “punch”.  Odd.

Dave’s Rating:

  • Dave’s Rating: 5/10
  • Strength: 4/10
  • Sweetness: 4/10
  • Not bad, but hard to recommend.
