Today on the Bite Tonight: The Sugar House
Another Corktown classic is The Sugar House, serving up craft cocktails just right for any season. The next stop, on mine and Tiffany’s trip down memory lane was filled with refreshing ingredients and an entertaining bar chef. We watched as each guest was poured something unique. See how they ranked.
Atmosphere: 4 out of bites
Price: 2.5 out of 5 bites
Quality/Taste: 4 out of 5 bites
Service: 3 out of 5 bites
Wow Factor: 4 out of 5 bites
Pimm’s Cup: Pimms No.1, lemon, ginger syrup, mint, cucumber & soda. Strong ginger hits your tastebuds right away. Refreshing with a little fizz from the soda.
Juliet & Romeo: Gin, simple syrup, lime, rose water, cucumber and mint. I asked for something light, summery, with cucumber and this is what I got! The mint pushes its way right up front, but it was invigorating and energizing.
The Sugar House is very pretentious, but has made a home into Corktown, Detroit. Just be careful because ordering something ordinary is considered an insult. With hundreds of different options including wines, beers, mixed drinks, liquors, classic cocktails, and punches, there’s something for everyone. And if you find the menu as overwhelming as I did, just tell the mixologist what you fancy and watch as your request is concocted into an interesting potion. By combining smoke, spices, only the freshest and finest ingredients, and even egg white, each cocktail is crafted with care and precision. At the Sugar House, every drink tells a story, so stop in and hear yours.
