ROKC Ramen and Drinks

June 04, 2017

 

I'm really not sure how this one ended up on my list, but I finally caught the A train up to ROKC in Hamilton Heights to try out a few of their cocktails and ramen.  I read somewhere that these were some of the best cocktails in the city.  Oysters and ramen were a plus.  Walked right by the place the first time.  Small and very low key, tiny on the inside, but I was early enough to grab a seat at the bar.

Started off with the Smoke.  Burbon, ancho reyes, cynar, house bitters.  Had a great cinnamon taste to it.

Switched to the Beets.  Reposado tequila, beets balsamic reduction, dill.

The seafood broth ramen was surprisingly good for a cocktail bar.

Bartender recommended that I try the Thai Tea to finish things off.  Cachaca, Thai Tea, Condensed Milk, and absinthe.  Part of it is served as a shot in an egg shell and birds nest.  Wish I had gotten a better picture of this.  Presentation of this drink was pretty nice.

There were plenty of other drinks that I wanted to try, from the ones that came out on fire, to the ones served in a conch shell, but after 3 drinks and some ramen, I was done.
