Happy Hour at the Melting Pot!  Met up with our friend after her performing her civic duty on a jury.  Needless to say she was in need of a drink.  Started the evening a Vin de Syrah, moved upstairs for some cheese fondue at The Melting Pot.  This has to be one of the best happy hour deals in downtown San Diego.  Let’s just say that the bartender made it even cheaper.  Oh, and by the way, its International Women’s Day.

It was dealers choice at the bar.  After looking over the cocktail choices on the Happy Hour menu they all seemed kind of feminine.  Being a man I asked him if he could take it up a notch.  What lay before me was a double Raspberry Press.

  • Raspberry Vodka
  • Soda Water
  • Seven Up

Served in a pint glass over ice.  Garnished with an orange slice.

Dave’s Thoughts:

  • Tastes like one of those flavored soda water drinks – you know – the ones without any sugar.
  • The vodka fades away in the drink, and you get the taste of raspberry and the scent of the orange,
  • Drink up – this one’s strong.

Tasting Notes:

  • Dave’s Rating: 6/10
  • Strength: 7/10
  • Sweetness: 3/10
  • One was enough.  Mediocre and strong.
