We all grew to love (scratch that – grew a full fledged addiction to) Lloyd pretty much since the day their OG truck hit the streets. And if you didn’t, how can I put this lightly…you’re weird and please leave.
When the news of Lloyd’s shiny new taco factory made it’s way into the ears (and let’s be honest, the hearts) of Western New Yorkers, we were beyond excited. There would soon be a place to get your Krazy Korn fix without hunting Lloyd down. We recently stopped into the jam packed restaurant for a cocktail at their adorable bar.
The fast-casual restaurant and bar was booming with chatter and upbeat music. The bright colored cocktails from the bar were just as vibrant as the awesome graffiti on the wall. While there were several cocktails that caught my eye like Kiwi Krush (Cachaca, lime, kiwi cordial, strawberry leather) and Miss Burlesque (tequila, Licor 43, Hibiscus Cordial, lemon, egg white), I opted for the Snozzberry Mule made with vodka, blueberry shrub, lemon, and ginger beer.
The Snozzberry Mule (which we highly recommend) was a soft purple color and served in an ice cold Lloyd mug – a play on the copper mugs mules usually come in – and garnished with mint. The refreshing lemon and blueberry flavors took this baby over the edge. If you’re looking for something to transport you from snowy/rainy/windy/chilly Buffalo for a minute or two, this cocktail and the friendly Lloyd bartenders are right up your alley. Another great pick (if you’re into rum) is the Nautical Disaster (3 varietal rums, falernum, lime, and grapefruit) pictured here.
