boozings – Midtown Village At APO

Welcome back to another installment of boozings, where we try all of Philly’s Top 15 Drinks! Next up we go to APO, for the Midtown Village. It is APO’s version of the manhattan, and is made with rye whiskey, port wine, amaro, italian vermouth, bitters, and orange on fire, served in an ornate martini type of glass. The orange on fire is flames shooting off a twist of orange zest into the drink. When you’re getting table service, this bit of fire display isn’t something you get to see at all.

I had previously said that the oyster house punch tasted like fall. Well, this drink tastes like christmas. And it doesn’t taste good. I love christmas and the holidays and all that jazz, but I don’t want to eat anything that tastes like christmas or drink anything that tastes like christmas. In short, it tastes like port wine infused with a holiday wreath. Kinda gross if you ask me, but that’s just my opinion. There, finally something on the list I don’t like!

Some of the other cocktails we tried were the moroccan something, which was also not that great, and the booty collins. The booty collins was delicious! It was definitely a girley drink that tasted pretty much just like passion fruit juice.

The scarlett kossak was also delicious, but yet again, a girley drink. As if the red strawberry on top didn’t give it away. You get complimentary soft pretzels, which is a plus. But they need to give you some mustard!

Ok, 7 down, only 8 more to go!
