Drink of the week: The Prestige at Lurcat
1624 Harmon Place, Minneapolis
is what sets a drink menu apart. When you combine imagination and
elegance, both of which Bar Lurcat is rich with, getting a drink at a
bar is like experiencing a world beyond your own.
The Prestige is aptly named ast the Lurcat ladies are the fancy sort
with expensive purses, and the men are well-groomed. It
would not seem
strange if Victoria Beckham sat down next to you. I was worried that I
would trip and/or spill something.
Like the all-white
surrondings in which it is served, The Prestige is minimal and
clean: Stoli orange vodka, fresh lime juice and honey simple
syrup, garnished with a mint leaf. The bartender recommended this
drink, which he said he was proud to have created--one of several new
additions to the drink menu. The drink certainly lived up to my
expectations--citrusy and light, but the honey simple syrup gave it
weight and interest.
I look forward to trying future
inspired creations from Bar Lurcat and hope that no one notices that my
Kate Spade purse is a fake.
