Saint Patty’s Season Continues with Green Drinks at the Pan Pacific

Pucker up for vodka-based specials at the SLU hotel bar.

March 9, 2010

We started this SP season off with Tom Douglas’ Beer Blast but if vodka cocktails are more your thing, check out the green drink specials at the bar the Pan Pacific Hotel.

There is the Go Green: Cucumber Dry Soda, pear vodka, and Sour Apple Pucker schnapps, and then there is the Irish Pride: pear vodka, triple sec, and Cucumber Dry.

Hmm. Which of these would I choose? I guess the second one, because it doesn’t have Sour Apple Pucker schnapps in it, which sounds like it tastes like a Jolly Rancher. I don’t really drink vodkas though, unless I’m in suburban Connecticut, where my parents live, and where the Grey Goose flows like it’s Defender of the Fatherland Day in Moscow. I do like an infusion now and again though, why not? And Cucumber Dry is good, though I prefer it with gin. I’m digressing: if these sort of drinks are up your alley, lucky you. The Pan Pacific will be serving them on Wednesday, March 17 for $10 a pop.
