And that's exactly what I did last night at The Patterson House...a place I have been dying to try for months. Easy to miss with only a small sign on the front door, The Patterson House is located in a historic home in the midtown area of Nashville and is famous for personalized cocktails and pre-Prohibition era charm. In fact, the place got its name from former Tennessee governor Malcolm R. Patterson who vetoed the return of prohibition to the state in the early 1900's. Smart man.
Sorry for the blurry pictures...I was trying to be sneaking without the flash :-)
The drink I tried was called Flowers for Algernon (ridiculous name for a drink, right?) and was made with vodka, sparkling wine, grenadine, lavender, and some other fancy ingredient that I can't remember right now. And it was UH-mazing. Oh, and the salt and sugar coated mini doughnuts were pretty much to die for too.
P.S. Sorry...no April Fool's Day post from me today...I never was one who liked to be fooled.
