Pazo's new $5 happy hour drink menu

pazoThank you, recession!

Well, I'm not entirely sure that's the reason behind Pazo's new happy hour, but that's my guess.

Here's the deal: It's called Pazo Cinco (heh) and runs from 5 p.m.-7 p.m. Mondays-Fridays -- starting Jan. 2.

During Pazo Cinco, a handful (pun!) of tapas dishes and martinis are only $5 each.

Five. Five dollar. Five dollar foot longs! Oh wait, that's another deal altogether.

I'll let Elizabeth Large write about the food menu. Here's the $5 drink list ...

Kaffir Lime & Thai Chili Martini: Kaffir Lime Vodka, Coconut Water, Chili & Lemongrass & Peanut infusion, Massenez Gingembre

Cava Royale: Cava, Peach Nectar, Fresh Lime Peel

White Chocolate & Macadamia Nut Martini: White Chocolate Liqueur, Macadamia Nut Liqueur, Biscotti Liqueur

Mondello Mojito: Rum, Fresh Lemon & Lime Juices, Crushed Fresh Spearmint

Gingerbread Martini: Massenez Gingembre, Voyant Liqueur, Patron XO Café

FYI -- Pazo is at 1425 Aliceanna St. Call 410-534-7296.

Will there be space and a valet? my limo doesn't pick me up until at least 7 so I'll be cutting it close.

When I read the headline I was enthused! When I read the drink list I was grossed out. The mojito is the only nominally decent cocktail on the list and that's a summer drink. Ah, to find a smooth Manhattan or a plain ole Martini on the list...sigh

They make a decent sidecar, it's on their actual drink menu, however absent on the happy hour menu.

Ms. Large hasn't posted the food specials - could you?

Hey Greg, no problem. Here they are:

Croquetas – crispy mashed potatoes with Manchego

Grilled Pork Tenderloin Pinchos - Andalusian Spices, caramelized honey aioli

Empanadas – spiced veal & pork in pastry with salsa verde

Wood Grilled Eggplant Dip – with cucumber and sesame

Tapas-sized Pizza Costa – tomato confit, buffalo mozzarella, reggiano & basil

Thanks Sam. The food specials definitely sound tastier than the drinks

Keep in mind they don't start until Jan 2!!!
