Drink This: Ginger Blossom

Drink This is NBCLA's weekly taste of local sips



    Drink This: Ginger Blossom
    Gobi Mongolian BBQ House
    Gobi Mongolian BBQ House debuted in Silver Lake in November 2009.

    Your job: get to the bar. Our job: Help you find that perfect drink. This week, NBCLA's "Drink This" journey takes us out for...

    The Ginger Blossom: Ginger is in it, of course. Also: Soju, lime juice, and lemon-lime soda.

    Where you can get a glass: Gobi Mongolian BBQ House, which opened a few weeks back in Silver Lake.

    Soju: You can read more about it here; Wikipedia says it can be made from rice, and a whole bevy of other starchy foodstuffs. Suffice it to say it has kick.

    Price: The Ginger Blossom is $6, as are the other cocktails on the specialty menu. Think Pomegranate Martini and Red Dragon, too.

    After your Ginger Blossom, you'll have... Stir-fried specialties with meats, chicken or veges, and some very tempting sauces. Smoked oyster is a sauce, as is green curry. Asian pesto is on there, and lemongrass, too.

    We didn't mention the lemon mint sauce: So, lemon mint. We'd go with this sauce, while we drink our citrus-nice Ginger Blossom, just to make the entire meal perfectly tart.
