|Whiskey and empanadas.|
For our entrees, it was red meat all the way – a buffalo New York Strip for Dan and a Filet Mignon for me. Both were cooked to perfection!
Perhaps the most daring part of my meal was the cordial I ordered. Now, if you remember correctly, I am NOT a big drinker, especially of things that TASTE terrible. But I was drawn to something on the menu called the Trade Whiskey - a small shot of whiskey flavored with red pepper, tobacco and black gunpowder. Yes, gunpowder. I don’t remember ever drinking whiskey before in my life, but I just needed to try this wild concoction. The first few sips went down ok, but my mistake was leaving the whiskey to the side, allowing the flavors to just get stronger. Let’s just say I didn’t finish it, BUT I can say that I have tasted gunpowder.
