I think it is fair to say we really enjoy a good cocktail at craveDFW. Probably more so than the average human should. Imagine how we felt after receiving this huge box from Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse.
The staff wandered around the giant box with aplomb gazing at its wonderment, then we ravished the package like it was our first Christmas. We were hoping it was a giant haunch of beef, but to our amazement it was a set of cocktail tools.
Seems Ruth’s Chris is getting into the cocktail game and wanted to make it fun. Along with the fun gift, which we will pass onto one of our readers, was a bar menu that included all the new drinks and some fun new munchy items to assist with all that drinking you will be doing.
There are two versions of the cocktail menu. The first is fairly straight forward and classic, like the Moscow Mule (vodka, ginger liqueur, fresh lime juice and ginger ale), or the Manhattan (whiskey, sweet vermouth, Southern Comfort, and a Luxardo cherry). Their happy hour is from 4 to 6:30pm and everything is $7.
Then they list off a page of kicked up cocktails like Strawberry Basil Gimlet and a Cucumber Collins.
We really enjoyed perusing the appetizer menu that listed off some pretty cool items such as the New England Lobster Roll and Fries. A lobster roll for seven bucks sounds mighty fine. The New Orleans BBQ Shrimp and the Seared Ahi Tuna looked tasty as well.
Pretty neat gimmick sending us a giant box. It made us look and it’s yours for the asking.
