Drink of the week: The Nutty X at Zest Kitchen & Bar
$ 8 Â» The Nutty X at Zest Kitchen & Bar, 275 S. 200 West, Salt Lake City; 801-433-0589
The Nutty X is a triple espresso vodka martini containing Frangelico hazelnut liqueur and almond milk. Given the ingredients, you might assume this drink would be overpowering, but it has a rather gentle flavor. It also didn't give me that wired feeling that some espresso martinis do. Instead, it provided a smooth buzz and paired perfectly with the other cocktail and food we ordered. The club offers a unusual cocktail menu, including a beet sangria and kombucha bombs, which combine healthy ingredients with organic alcohol for guilt-free indulgence.
