boozings – Smoke ‘Em If You Got ‘Em At London Grill

Welcome back to another installment of boozings, where we try all of Philly’s Top 15 Drinks! Next up we go to London Grill, for the Smoke ‘Em If You Got ‘Em. It is a drink made with house infused chipotle mezcal, Victory Prima Pils, and a smoked tomato salt rim, served in a pint glass. This is another spicy ass drink on this list. Am I the only one who’s puzzled by the idea of spicy and smoky cocktails? I mean the bloody mary, sure, but all these drinks with peppery and smoky drinks are a bit odd to me. Maybe not so much the peppery and spicy, but the smoky throws me off.

Alright, so I didn’t really care for this. I had a spicy/smoky drink made with chili infused tequila at distrito and really liked it. But this one, with chipotle infused mezcal, not so much. Something just didn’t work for me. And believe me, I tried to like it, but I just didn’t. And it didn’t really go well with the pils either. I feel as though something chili infused needs to be smoothed out with some kind of juice, and not a beer. And it’s a really hoppy beer, so it doubly did not do it for me. So there, another one on the list I did not like. You can’t win ’em all!

Ok, 13 down, 2 more to go! I’ve only got 2 left, whoa!
