I turned 21 recently, so naturally, I've been ordering drinks every chance I get. I was excited for my birthday for awhile, not because I wanted to get shitfaced, as most people already experience that, but because I would finally be able to buy alcohol, to stock my fridge with beer, and order drinks with my dinner like an adult. Now that I can legally purchase alcohol, I have been able to have fun experimenting with trying new drinks.I compiled a list of some drinks in Tallahassee that I particularly enjoyed or find noteworthy. I'm also a beer person, so many of the drinks I included reflect on that. For the purpose of this article, some of the drinks pictured have been recreated based off of their original recipes.
1. The Margarona from Cancun's Sports Bar and Grill
2. Garnet and Gold Martini from Prime Time
3. The Lunchbox from Potbelly's
This drink is pretty common, but I've had it when I've been out at Pots. It costs ten dollars and comes in a small pitcher. The Lunchbox contains beer, juice, and liquor. It's small, so it's best shared between two people and not many more. This basically tastes just like juice, which is awesome. I'm forever grateful to the random girl we met who insisted we try her Luchbox drink.
4. The High Tea from Madison Social
Madison Social has an array of cocktails, and I was particularly drawn to their beer cocktails. The High Tea contains sweet tea flavored vodka, lemonade, sierra mist, and beer. This is light and sweet, but it is not super sugary and overwhelming. It is the perfect refreshing drink due to the tea and lemonade flavors.
5. Mango Wit from Proof Brewing Company
