all house martinis are $7 until 7drinks testeddirty queen (luga-nova cinnamon, olive juice, olives):

a bit on the sweet side, but verrrry tastymango martini (mango-orange-pineapple vodka infusion, fresh mango puree, fresh raspberry puree, cream):
looks really beautiful; definitely tasted better than i thought it would (i've been off mango drinks since a certain incident involving mango mixer and tequila) red velvet punch (raspberry vodka, mandarin vodka, orange juice, lemonade, grenadine):
wow! tasty! more please!russian apple (vodka, green apple liquor, splash of pineapple):
totally delicious and something to start off with if you aren't feeling too adventuroussputnik (vodka, peach schnapps, orange juice, fresh cream):
so pretty! the bartender drew a flower into the top layer of cream! oh, and it was deliciousvodka shots testedrussian garant "pickle-garlic":
i didn't taste anything really, but freshmeat swears there was a garlic taste to it. i was much more excited by the pickles we got to eat after the shot. incredibly smooth!stolichnaya blueberry:
eh. not really one i enjoyed (basementgirl volunteered to finish mine off). but everyone else really liked it.overall conclusion
while, i did perhaps open a broom closet on my way back from the restroom in a vain attempt to figure out how to get back to the bar, i got to say the place was awesome. definitely going back there again.
definitely going to have someone led the way so i don't go around opening inappropriate doors.
and don't do any shots...they hit you like a ton of bricks.
