Innovations we can all do without.

Rakı--good. Fresh mint--good. Sugar--good.

A "Rakı Mojito?" Almost unbelievably bad. Imagine licorice toothpaste with alcohol. The world might (might) be ready for an anise-flavoured cocktail, but this is most assuredly not it.

Also, visitors to Chicago are strongly encouraged to try this. The best description I've heard of the flavor so far is "rubber band with notes of grapefruit pith." yummy :)

I tend to think that things which were poured into Hamlet's dad's ear to kill him are probably better not poured down my throat.

I can't imagine the Rakı Mojito tasting any better than you make it sound, so thank you for taking one for the time and trying it so I don't have to.

I think I made the mistake of assuming that outlandishly expensive hotel bars actually -try- the drinks they concoct before putting them on the menu.

Re: wormwood
hahaha. They probably did, but decided to put it on the menu anyway as a joke at the customers' expense.
