Who Dat cocktail scores at Pamplona

by Mary Tutwiler

There’s a lot of crazy Saints stuff out there, but here’s one welcome newbie to the Who Dat Nation: Pamplona Tapas Bar bartender Luke Tullos mixed up an homage to the Super Bowl-bound Saints this week that is a sure shot.The Who Dat cocktail tastes as good as it looks.

Tullos starts with a shot of chilled espresso, Kahlua and Old New Orleans Spiced Rum, shaken, not stirred, and strained into a chilled martini glass. A brilliant touch is the gold head, created by whipping heavy cream and Galliano into a new wave foam. Then comes the chocolate ribbon and a cocoa powder fleur de lis. Sweet but not heavy, and it packs a kick.

Raise your glasses to the drink of the week, $8. Call Pamplona at 232-0070 for more info.
