Datz a Reason to Celebrate the Season!

#31DaysOfLove, #TuesdayBoozeday, Cocktails, Drink Local, South Tampa

I love to eat, drink and be merry and there is no better place to do those three things than at Datz! Where else can you have festive cocktails, über delicious food and then shop for foodie gifts and delectable treats? Datz is the first place that comes to my mind and if I hear you have not yet been there, I am putting you on my naughty list!

Speaking of naughty, it is a word I often use during the holidays. With so many decadent treats, I find myself saying yes to everything. Datz is a place I can never say “no” to and their holiday martinis are my weakness. Last week I tried their new Mulled Apple Cider Martini which is a blend of Siesta Key Spiced Rum, apple cider and mulling spices. Served chilled in a martini glass, it will arouse your senses as well as your taste buds. It is simply fantastic.

With the holiday season upon us, visions of  holiday cocktails are dancing in my head. My calendar is  filled with cocktail dates at Datz and I can’t wait to taste my way around their seasonal cocktail menu.

With holiday favorites such as Wreck The Halls (Adult Chocolate Milk, Kahlua Peppermint Mocha, Candy Cane), Gingersnap Eggnog (Tres Leches Cream Liqueur, Domaine de Canton, Lazzaroni Amaretto, cream and gingersnap rim) and the Winter White Cosmo (Voli Lyte Vodka, St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur, white cranberry juice and lime), Datz has done a fabulous job mixing up some seasonal libations.

All this talk about cocktails has me anxious to get in the kitchen and tie-one-on. Yes, that is right, I want to pull out my new Jessie Steele apron and tie-it on.  I must have been very good this year, because the new Santa-inspired Jessie Steele apron that is available at Datz has been on my list and Santa brought it to me as an early gift. This apron is so dang cute that even if I burn dinner, I will look cute doing so.  😉  Fellas, go get your gals one of these! I am sure she will show her appreciation by putting some red-hot lovin’ on the stove.



By now I am sure you know how much I love Datz and for those of you on the nice list this year, I have three drink vouchers to give away. As part of my #31DaysOfLove and my love for my readers, I am honored to share my love of Datz with y’all. To enter, simply comment on this post and tell me what cocktail you are most anxious to try and a reason as to why you might need an evening to wreck the halls. 🙂  I will pick a winner Friday, December 7th.  Cheers!

Oh, and share the love will ya!

    I think the wreck the halls also contains vanilla vodka. I’ll be posting about my Datz dinner off the new menu tomorrow!
