Zoobie’s Old Town Tavern
Zoobie’s black-rum-and-lime-infused mule, the Dark & Stormy, gets rave reviews. But sometimes it’s just fun to let the bartenders at Zoobie’s pick something for you. Known for “trust us” cocktails and pizzas — Zoobie’s won’t give its secrets away — but fans say the establishment is usually spot on. Fans also mentioned Zoobie’s hot-buttered rum and hazelnut sour. Zoobie’s is at 1200 N. Larch St. in Lansing.
The restaurant is known for pizza and Italian food, but one fan called the strawberry margarita at Piazzano’s hands down the best cocktail in the 517. Reviewers love the generous food portions, the staff and the atmosphere where good friends meet. Who’s craving a margarita now? Piazzano’s is at 1825 N. Grand River Ave. in Lansing.
The popular restaurant Meat has some pretty cool cocktails on the menu, from the lavender mule to the hibiscus peach margarita, but it has some pretty big bloody mary fans too. Meat’s version is called the Meaty Mary and includes the house bloody mary mix with a splash of dark beer and Stolichnaya vodka. Meat is located in Old Town Lansing at 1224 Turner St.
