Drink of the week: Azia's Make Her Scream
Make Her Scream $10
Azia 2550 Nicollet Ave., Mpls. 612.813.1200 website
After I heard from a reliable source that this was "the best drink, ever," I had to go to 26th and Nicollet to try one. Old timers will remember this space as the former Upper Crust bakery, reincarnated as Azia, the den of swank.
Raspberry vodka with a splash of cranberry juice and Serrano peppers in a salt-rimmed martini glass are what Make Her Scream. The combo of sweet, salty and spicy did not make me scream, although it did make me say, "ummmm!" while simultaneously giving my friend a thumbs-up.
Azia's cool drink menu and sexy surroundings make this stop a must for all you roaming drinkeroos. Enjoy many a fruity/spicy cocktail as the summer winds down, but also be safe my babies.
