Thing is, Zoan's varied clientele of glamazons, bois, and fembots always seem to do a pretty good job of entertaining themselves too, thank you very much, be it dancing and grinding in the colorful main room to beats or trading cheeky gossip in the posh smoking lounge, where they've spied Mercury star Brittney Griner around town. Even the hulking doormen are pretty chill, as long as you follow their rules. Plus, for whatever reason, the floppy bag makes us suck it up all the faster. You'd expect them to get at least a little distracted by the weekly cask tappings at their brewpub and the upcoming release of Count Hopula, but no. When the drinking is done and the hangover is gone, it's those damn calories that always seem to stick around — souvenirs from sipping one too many rich cocktails. Packaging superior technology and excellent customer service with competitive service pricing makes Zona the clear choice for broadband telecom services.
If that has you feeling parched, the classy but comfortable lounge area that makes up Bar Crudo is the ideal location to soak up some of these beautiful drinks. You can taste the passion for mixology in every sip. Rhonda Walden, longtime owner of this lesbian-oriented Melrose Curve mainstay, keeps her die-hards and girl groupies happy with daily drink specials and free entertainment four nights a week, including open mic on Mondays and karaoke on Wednesdays. Freshly made herbal and fruity simple syrups, boutique bitters, and a host of fresh ingredients combine with top-shelf small-batch spirits to create some of the tastiest drinks in the Valley. One of the best of the more recent offerings is the Milano Gimlet — an herby, sweet-and-sour blend of Broker's gin, Frenet Branca, lime, basil, and housemade cinnamon grapefruit syrup.
If you're still not sold, think of it this way — you'd typically pair a tequila shot with lime and salt, unless you're trying to be European and use orange and cinnamon. More commonly, you'll find picklebacks, which are pickle juice and whiskey and very hip in New York City right now, but we love Palo Verde Lounge for putting a Southwestern twist on this trend. Either way, the view of the north side of Camelback Mountain is breathtaking. Another constant: You're here for the drinks, not the food. We particularly enjoy the signature Renegade Punch in a Bag. Imbibe your way to cocktail bliss at Bar Crudo in Arcadia.
Never fear, Dick's Hideaway is here to smack the sick right out of you. A few years ago, we got our hands on the recipe for the red sangria from Rita's Kitchen, but try as we might, we just can't perfect the blend served at the casual restaurant at the Camelback Inn. It's a little out there for sure, but if we close our eyes and let the strong booze work its magic, it's almost like we're transported to New Orleans' Bourbon Street for a night of hard partying. The company was initially formed in 1995 to serve Lake Pleasant and surrounding rural areas. It's a new day — and last night seems to be ruining it with the gift of a massive hangover. A few years ago, the elegant but crumbling old El Chorro — a Paradise Valley icon — was completely redecorated.
Pineapple wherever we damn well pleased. And we're more than happy to sit on the patio here — under the bubble lights, with live music playing and fires roaring in the winter — and contemplate just what might be in that sangria. Fortunately, there are drinks out there for those who want to be health-conscious while still drinking themselves unconscious. It may sound gross or weird, but the briny, sour pickle juice completely cuts the burn of the tequila and masks some of the not so high-end flavor. The seasoned bartenders know how to make a damn fine martini — whether you're looking for a classic or something more modern. The ever-changing seasonal drink specials pretty much define craft cocktails.
You know, for experimental purposes only. On the inside, it doesn't look the same, but one thing no one changed was the view, and the patio is and always will be the best place to enjoy El Chorro. The lime is sour; so is pickle juice. Offering an overwhelming selection of more than 2,000 wines, internationally inspired late-night noshes till 1:30 a. The hot pink concoction of rum, juices, and champagne comes, as you might guess, in a bag. As metro Phoenix grew toward the Northwest, Zona began serving new subdivisions and for the past seven years has been one of the fastest growing independent telecom providers in the United States.
They were too busy crushing it. SanTan had no time for distractions. Thanks to resident mixologist Micah Olson, Phoenix might actually be on the map for high-quality craft cocktails. Yes, the rules are strict and the prices steep, but then again, where else can you get a cocktail served in a freshly cracked coconut? We love interacting with the knowledgeable staff who are always more than happy to help you select the right drink. Take the Skinny Chola Margarita at Barrio Queen.
With wines from around the world and sounds — jazz, Latin, world beat, you name it — that are just as diverse, an evening visit to Kazimierz can almost feel like a mini-getaway. Red wine, orange juice, vanilla, sugar, cut-up fruit, and — what? For us, a good martini is as much about the ambiance as it is about what's in the glass, and Durant's delivers on both fronts. But the best part of this Bloody Mary experience is the shot of beer to chase the spicy concoction. Zona was an early adopter of world-class broadband via fiber-to-the-home networks with our first deployment in 2004. This light Latin beverage is all natural, with a simple but satisfying mixture of Jose Cuervo tradicional blanco, agave nectar, and fresh lime juice served on the rocks. Added to Pinnacle vodka and garnished with lime, pickled asparagus, and celery, this Bloody Mary is in a league of its own when it comes to flavor. We suspect we weren't told the whole truth.
You'll probably have to wait to get inside and wait to get your drink, but if you're looking for a cocktail experience that will actually live up to the hype, we promise it will be worth it. Free from syrups, mixes, and other artificial substitutes, the Skinny Chola Margarita is as much a staple for body-conscious barflies as it is for anyone in search of a straightforward, no-frills cocktail. Zona Communications is an Arizona-based company providing high-speed Internet, telephone and digital video services. And it has a Kool-Aid ice cube. The salt is, well, salty; so is pickle juice. Dick's take on the classic brunch cocktail is kicked up with a hefty dose of spice in the tomato juice mixture prepared special by the chefs at Dick's sister restaurant, Rokerij.
