Don’t let the hotel bar stigma or the cocktail name scare you away from trying this delicious concoction. When I mentioned to my fellow staff members that I would be trying The Lounge Kitten, it invoked a few chuckles. Undeterred, I pressed forward knowing that I was in good hands with the drink’s creator, Jennifer.
Arriving at the hotel, I missed the clearly obvious signs for 205 on Wolf and walked in the main lobby doors.
I was directed down about a half mile of snaking hallways eventually arriving in a very impressive bar complete with a glowing fireplace, comfortable booths, stylish tables and chairs, and the well-stocked bar. It is my suggestion that you heed the directional signs, take a seat wherever you feel most comfortable, and order The Lounge Kitten.
|A perfect summer drink|
To my surprise, the drink was not sticky, was just the right amount of sweet, and was actually quite delicious! Jennifer created the cocktail using X-Rated Liquer (a “superior product”), along with orange vodka, lime wedges, and cranberry juice.
