THE SIENA TAVERN MULE
My first sip of this mule was slightly less than absolutely delightful. I specifically notified the waitress that I would be reviewing this cocktail online. Mostly I tasted the lime. I couldn’t taste the liquor, nor the ginger beer, but I can tell it’s there.
This mule was prepared icy cold- just how we love it. The Siena Tavern Mule also comes in the proper copper cup! Thank gosh because that would have been an automatic point off. The copper cup honestly saved my experience. I appreciate the chilled cocktails so much more when there is a freezing cold cup of copper containing ice and the mixed ingredients.
This mule is easily a near-4-star experience. It’s refreshing cold, and I even felt a solid enough buzz afterward. The cup is probably only 8oz which made this a very short drink with ice included. You’ll need another one rather quickly to fulfill your desires for the night.
Siena Tavern Chicago is a very open environment with a close-knit feeling to it. The menu selection is very simple and suiting to the atmosphere. Come here to have a good time and speak loudly. Even on a quiet Monday evening this place is bold and alive with social interaction. On the right night you can catch the place packed to capacity.
The Siena Tavern Mule is a classic. Though I found the flavor a little boring, the copper cup and chilled-to-serve preparation of this mule delighted me. I highly recommend the Siena Tavern mule for a good night out. Drink 3 of these and you’ll be happy you ordered it.
The Siena Tavern Mule gets 3.2 stars. This mule was properly served in the Moscow Mule traditional copper cup.
