Villains Tavern

Because let’s face it… sometimes being bad feels so good…

Last week I was invited (by the kind folks at Shiny Object Co.) to check out the new Fall-Winter Specialty Cocktails at Villains Tavern downtown.

Villains Tavern CocktailThe four I tasted (lucky me, I had a driver!):

Blackheart (Goslings Dark Rum, Blackheart Spiced Rum, Rum Batter, Hot Water with Heavy Whipping Cream)

Day of the Dead (Mulled Spice Cider, Vodka, Apple Jack and Bitters)

Sleepy Hollow (Gin, Pumpkin, Citrus, Organic Egg Whites, Sugar, Heavy Whipping Cream and Chocolate Chili Bitters)

Edgar Allan Poe (A spin on the eggnog created in 1862 by Jerry Thomas, with Fighting Cock Bourbon, fresh green apple juice, an organic egg, sugar and nutmeg)

Along with the new cocktails, I munched on some terrific bar bites:

Villains Tavern's Grilled Cheese w/ Bacon Marmalade

Villains Tavern's Fried Chickpeas
Deep-fried Chickpeas (couldn’t get enough of these suckers!)

This was my first visit to Villains Tavern, and I’m already planning a return visit with friends. It’s location is a bit isolated, but I have to admit… that added to the sort of dangerous fun of it all!

    It sounds like a truly fun place, and I’ve never had a deep fried chickpea, I’m obviously missing something.



    Love you blog!
