If you haven't been doing cartoons with cocktails. Mama.... you've been missing out (and you Papas too). Hell! .... anyone who's ever sat with a kid watching cartoons for days on end knows sometimes you just need a cocktail at the end of the day and what better time than now when the kids are going back to school.
My boys watched A LOT of Spongebob, and although I have to admit that it's actually really funny. Sometimes I just couldn't stand the thought of having to hear another episode while I was busy doing things around the house. I could have really used a drink those days, so when I came across Cartoons & Cocktail at the Raymond Restaurant|1886 Bar. I couldn't contain my excitement - the overly excited Spongebob came out in me.
Each cocktail was created by staff members of The Raymond Restaurant |1886 Bar and they're all inspired by a cartoon character.
The Spongebob Martini Pants | By Adam Vaughn
Plymouth, Yellow Chartreuse, Lillet, Cardamom Bitters, Pecan Bitters, Stirred Up into a nice crisp balanced cocktail and appropriately garnished with a lemon peel with holes punched out.
I don't think Spongebob would be able to handle this drink.
