Kombucha Cocktails & Happy Hour Bites at BLT Steak

Kombucha is making waves through the food/drink scene around here. I’m still having a hard time understanding it. Does it contain alcohol? Apparently. Is it marketed as alcohol? No. Does it contain health benefits? So I hear.

What I do know is that it tastes great in cocktails.

BLT Steak, located at the Ritz-Carlton, is serving up three kombucha cocktails this summer, and they invited me to come give them a try. I sampled all three along with delicious bar bites from their happy hour menu.

If you work uptown, be sure to check out BLT Steak next time you’re looking for some after-work fun. They just introduced a “5 at 5” menu, which is a $5 menu available nightly from 5-7pm. Steeeeal.

Take a look at what I tried…
