Last night Catie, Emily, Leanna, Leanna’s boyfriend Adam, and I returned to the Thirsty Crow in Silver Lake. We went to the Thirsty Crow in July to celebrate Emily’s birthday. Last time we were there we had a great time so we decided to go back yesterday night.
We started off the night with a round of their signature drink, The Thirty Crow.
The drink is a mix of citrus, whiskey, bitters and ginger beer. I’ve had so much whiskey the past few weeks. Who am I?!
I had a sip of this drink the last time we went to the bar. This time the drink seemed much more ginger-ey which is good because I love ginger. Its one of my favorite flavors. I really liked this drink and I would recommend it. Honestly if I were to go back I would probably try their mint julep because they have a killer cocktail list.
After a considerable effort we managed to wrangle a booth for the night. Leanna is a master booth wrangler. She literally stormed the booth!
The crowd at Thirsty Crow last night wasn’t as fun as the last time we went but its still a great bar and I imagine we will be back. I got home at a reasonable hour because school is in session meaning I actually have to work on the weekends. I miss the summer already!
How are you spending your weekend?
The Thirsty Crow sounds delicious. I may actually have most of the ingredients on hand. Do you happen to have a recipe?
Hey, I don’t have the recipe with exact measurements. I would say that there was an emphasis on the ginger beer and citrus. It would be fun to experiment with.
Experimentation is always fun! How bout this for a first try:
To an ice-filled double old fashioned glass, add the following:
Juice from half a lemon
Couple dashes of Angostura or Peychaud’s Bitters
One part Bourbon or Rye Whisky
Two Parts Ginger Beer
Wedge of Lemon
Sprig of Mint
Buffalo Trace or Sazerac Rye would be really good in this.
Yum! I will have to try that and let you know how it goes!
