Specialty cocktails have joined the menu at Lucy's Fried Chicken, offering diners boozy refreshment to go with James Holmes' fried chicken recipe.
Our interest is particularly piqued by the Chicken Lip: "Chilled Dripping Springs Vodka or El Jimador Blanco Tequila, a raw oyster, splash of spicy tomato juice, dash of hot sauce, pinch of fried chicken crumbles." Say whaaaaaaaaaaaaat? Which one of these new drinks goes best with fried deviled eggs? Guess we'll just have to try them all.
