Drink of the Week: Spiked Mango Lemonade at Emmy's Spaghetti Shack

Posted By on Fri, Jul 18, 2008 at 3:12 PM


I was ambushed by a sickness a couple weeks ago, and took swift and immediate actions to reverse the situation. I mainlined water, ate lots of fruits and vegetables, and slept for hours. I also abstained from alcohol for a whole four days. (I know, I know. I'm waiting for my award in the mail.)

The four scant days off the sauce were enough to lower my tolerance and this is how I came to have my ass kicked by the Spiked Mango Lemonade at Emmy's spaghetti shack.

The spike in the Spiked Mango Lemonade is whiskey, and plenty of it. I'm a proponent of mixing lemonade with all kinds of booze, and the added taste of mango makes this a substantial cocktail. The bartenders at Emmy's don't scrimp on the whiskey and the concoction is served in an impressively tall glass.

Short people be warned, sitting in the low slung booths at Emmy's with one of these cocktails looming over you will make you feel a little bit like the kid whose dad lets them sit at the bar.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
