New Irish Coffee Tradition
The newest tradition at Mongoose versus Cobra stems from Mike Sammons being stranded in the Dublin Airport overnight with just $5 in his pocket. A kindly bartender introduced him to Irish coffee and the rest is history. Mike’s making each one he serves from 4-6PM daily (Andy’s handling Sundays), offering comfort and a great story for only $5.
“Sammons hopes people will take the opportunity to just stop and catch a moment for themselves. The caffeine provides a second wind to get through the rest of the evening, while the whiskey calms the nerves. ‘I think we’re missing that culture in Houston,’ he said. ‘I know it won’t change the world, but it might make a difference for a couple of people. This town is a place to work, and sometimes it’s good to just hang out for a while.’
Best Tonic in H-Town
The Culture Trip recently named Mongoose versus Cobra’s Gin & Tonic the best in H-Town. Their homemade tonic takes more time, but it’s worthwhile!
“Look no further if you are on a quest for the best G & T in town. Situated in the magnificent land of Midtown, Mongoose versus Cobra exudes coolness.”
