Dinner at San Telmo

We had member of my family come to Melbourne from interstate this week and decided that another dinner was on the cards. We chose San Telmo for dinner and oh…what’s this…they serve cocktails…nooooo. What a surprise!!

I have eaten at Sal Telmo before & really enjoyed it. I love empanadas and love alfajores so as long as I get a serve of both then I am happy.

What to have…what to have!!!

When we arrived I checked out their cocktail menu and ordered the Malvinas Island Ice Tea. I really enjoyed this cocktail, you see on my way into the city it just so happened that Liverpool FC were in Melbourne. So the city was packed (the MCG had 95,000 people watching the friendly game between Liverpool FC and Melbourne Victory) so I had to park the car in a carpark on Little Collins Street, walk to Collins Street then walk to Lonsdale Street and then to Meyers Place which is kinda near Little Collins Street. My point is with all that walking (in heels!!!!) I was tired and hot so my Malvinas Island Ice Tea was the perfect drink to start with.

I drank it a little too quickly. To top things off I had a visit to the Dentist earlier in the day so was in pain & absolutely had to take a panadeine for pain relief, so adding a cheeky cocktail or three helped totally knock out that pain.

Once we were seated at our table I ordered a La Cumparsita. This cocktail blew my mind. Amazing. I had a sip and wished it was served in this glass to the brim. WOW. It was all coffee and caramel and ohhhhhh. So easy to drink and I would have ordered another but I planned on going to sleep later.

La Cumparsita – AHHHmazing cocktail.

I decided on a final cocktail. Pisco Sour, again another classic cocktail that I can tick off my list of ‘cocktails to try’. This was so nice and a drink that would great in the warmer months.

Pisco Sour – another very tasty cocktail

Overall I loved all the cocktails that I tried tonight, they are pricey but most cocktails are these days. I can appreciate the effort that goes into making them but I just wish I could have that La Cumparsita cocktail filled in a huge glass!!!

Mmmm Alfajore. Ohh Dulce de leche
