Woodland’s downtown main street is quite the draw these days, a good four or five blocks of busy, delicious, restaurants and bustling small businesses. A real far cry from what it was when I moved to Yolo County in 2004. One of those busy restaurants is Morgan’s on Main – a full service restaurant, bar, and rental space.

But, as big a fan of their food I am, this project is about cocktails! Let’s get to it!
Morgan’s on Main – The Review
Taste (6/10) – Lots of ice. Nice blend of whiskey and lemon. Smooth but a little too sour. T’s drink didn’t have this problem.
Presentation (3/5) – Pale. The preserved cherry is a nice touch and
Balance (3/5) – Good balance. The whiskey works with the lemon juice. This could just be that their
Correctness (3/5) – Half the correct garnish. No egg white. No asking about egg white.
Delivery (1/*) – No flourish, little interaction. Seemed distracted or disinterested.
Total (16/25) – This was a decent drink. There is room for improvement. The price was right though, it was happy hour and the drink only cost $6. I think most of the quality came from the Jim Beam.
In what might be a trend, the signature cocktails were much tastier and balanced than the Whiskey Sour was. We especially enjoyed The Drifter, Bourbon Berry Smash, and The Castaway
