Fluid: Army Navy at Clio

October 7, 2010

There comes a time to let down your guard. For some, that time is with a girlfriend/boyfriend. For some, that time is with our closest friends. For some, it is with our weekly therapist appointment.

And for some, it’s with the Army Navy cocktail at Clio.

Now, on my recent trip to Clio I had every intention of ordering a glass of wine- I did, really. But the great thing about the Eliot Hotel, and Clio, are the choices. Clio’s bar menu affords its drinkers so many pages of options that we had to turn our waitress away twice before deciding.  
The Army Navy is made with gin, lemon juice, and Orgeat- a sweet almond syrup that Clio makes in-house. If you think you won’t like it, you will. If you think you will like it, you will have three. (Get an order of vegetable tempura with wasabi aioli to keep you upright until dinner. It’s not called Army Navy for nothing.) This cocktail is now one of the few that I will remember by name and hope to be able to emulate at other establishments. But for now I can say for certain that Clio does this drink to perfection, and it won’t matter who wins, you’ll always root for Army/Navy.
