Drink discovery: Absolut news

As part of my birthday extravaganza, we went to the National Press Club's Reliable Source Bar Friday night for taco night. We usually get $3 coronas, but I was feeling festive an ordered the Absolut news, an adorably named cocktail off of the martini menu made with Absolut vodka, lemon juice and Cointreau. It was also garnished with a twist of lime. You can get a recipe for it here, although I'm not sure if that's exactly what I had because I don't recall that my cocktail had any soda in it.

Let me tell you, this was the most delicious $6 cocktail I've had. It tasted crisp and citrusy and went down smoothly. As one of my friends said "It's like if a Cosmo and a Mojito had a baby ... a delicious, alcoholic baby." Another friend tasted it and said "Oh yum, I like the news," which is funny coming from a reporter in the middle of a club for reporters.

Birthdays are delicious!
