Supersonic Gin & Tonics at Joey's

A couple weekends ago, when the sun was still shining and the temperature hadn't dipped below 60, Matt and I went to Joey's on Lake Union (901 Fairview Avenue N, Seattle 98108) to get some dinner and enjoy the view. We hadn't been to Joey's together since the first time we decided to hang out five years ago (all in unison: awwwwww). Anyway, we ate in the bar and people watched, as we always do . . . nothing is more amusing than judging other people while drinking! I am kidding (okay, not really).

The waitress came over and gave us a run down of the drink specials, which included a Supersonic Gin & Tonic for $5.99. Needless to say, I was intrigued. Turns out the Supersonic is a double gin and tonic with lime and a citrus vodka float (which is a big, boozy, ball of lemon slushy ice). I ordered one to go along with my evil chicken salad (chicken, mango, avocado, cucumbers, crunchies, a wedge of lettuce and spicy vinaigrette dressing). All in all a very summer appropriate meal. The Supersonic gin and tonic arrived and it was really yummy! It was like a cross between a margarita and a gin and tonic. All the slushy, citrus deliciousness of a blended margarita combined with the simple refresh of a gin and tonic. Matt tasted my drink and after he finished his martini he ordered one (and then another one) for himself!

Overall a great summer date night on Lake Union. If you make it out to Joey's this summer you must order a Supersonic Gin and Tonic, I know it sounds cheesy, but it is really yummy and a great price. It is rare to find a double well drink anywhere in Seattle for $6 and the Supersonic is a double plus a vodka citrus float; a great bargain in my book.

Let's hope this rain goes away soon and the sun starts making appearances on a regular basis! I am sick of this stupid rain and I am looking forward to barbecues and drinking on patios very soon.

    having side-effects , people can take a signal.

    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
