Tom’s Cocktails with a Pick-Me-Up

Summer is a time of constant motion, whether you find yourself at a Rockies game, at the neighborhood pool, or stuck in your air conditioned office, chances are you will be in in need of some sort of pick-me-up beverage within the next 24 hours. If you happen to find yourself around downtown Denver, you won’t want to miss out on Tom’s Urban 24‘s cocktails with a pick-me-up.

Day or night, Tom’s is open, offering the perfect cocktail to keep you up and going. You can start or end the day with Tom’s currently featured craft cocktail, “Urban Donuts & Coffee.” Made with shots of 360 Glazed Donut Vodka, Espresso Liquor, and finely ground espresso, this cocktail is artfully muddled together, and made complete with one of Tom’s own house-made donuts.

If donuts are not on the dietary plan, try another style pick-me-up cocktail known as the “Larimer Mule” made with Guayaki Mint Mate, the beverage said to hold the “strength of coffee, the health benefits of tea, and the euphoria of chocolate” all in one.

Tom’s even offers a beer cocktail with an extra energy kick made with a full pint of Guinness and a hefty shot of espresso. Indeed, this cocktail might have you dancing the Irish jig. If none of the cocktails mentioned thus far strike a cord with thy taste buds, one might dare to venture to order a glass of WTF;), unmatched in its ability to arouse the spirit. Just don’t ask what is in it beforehand as you might lose your sense of courage.

If you do manage to fully gulp down a WTF;), you can always catch a safe ride home with Uber, a mobile app that allows you to “e-hail” your ride home without even raising your hand. Attend a Culinary Connectors tour for a $20 Uber card good for first time riders.

And that’s okay. Denver is a big town, and not everyone wants artisanal charcuterie or sea bass with sunchoke veloute. Sometimes you want to hole up in a curvy booth with a burger, and Tom’s Urban 24 is the place for that, especially if you want a craft cocktail to go along with it. (Bartenders Chris Clewell and Les Baker recently competed in the finals of a national bartending competition.) Made with eight ounces of ground Angus, the patty isn’t smashed to order, as it is at Ryan’s other joint — that technique doesn’t work as well on a chargrill — but it is marbled with a half-ounce of frozen, grated butter. Topped with bacon, cheddar and Stranahan’s Whiskey barbecue sauce and barely contained in a toasted brioche bun, the burger is every bit as good as it should be, considering Ryan’s pedigree.

Juan, we agree. One of our favorite dishes though is the Slopper. Chargrilled burger smothered in green chili topped with a fried egg. Yes, please! Les is quite talented, he even won our Art of Winter Cocktail tour competition.
