At the Shorebreak Hotel, You Drink a Red Velvet Cupcake
We hung out in the sunny patio of the Shorebreak Hotel's Zimzala Restaurant & Bar on the search for something sweet to drink. When we spotted the Red Velvet Cupcake cocktail, we knew that would sate our sweet tooth.
We expected a sugary-sweet libation with maybe some frosting on the rim of the glass. You know, like a yummy red velvet cupcake. However, we got a fruity $12 concoction that still hit the spot.
Instead of having red cocoa-filled drink with cream cheese frosting, the Red Velvet Cupcake cocktail is mixed with vodka, strawberries, plumcots and mint. The cocktail still was sweet from the fruit, but the mint added some savory flavor. The cool chunks of plumcots were a nice edible addition on the hot summer day.
Now you know what to drink at the Huntington Beach hotel, tune in tomorrow for a peek inside the rooms.
