Cannon Chinese Kitchen – Effen’ Bob Barker

This satisfying summertime cocktail is on the menu year-round. It begins with house-made lemonade and muddled mint leaves. Then Effen Cucumber Vodka gets stirred into the mix in this no-muss, no fuss classic blend of fresh flavors. The glass is topped with a sprig of fresh mint and freshly sliced lemon for aromatics and garnish. Plus, it’s a fun drink to order.


Righteous Foods – Caipirinha

To celebrate the Olympics, Righteous Foods has Brazil’s national drink, the Caipirinha, on their chalkboard. Their version is crafted with a Righteous spin of course (meaning quality, organically sourced ingredients). The icy cold concoction blends organic Hibiscus Liquor, organic Cachaca (which is a spirit distilled from sugarcane juice – one of the most popular alcoholic beverages in Brazil), and fresh sparkling tea brewed from brightly hued hibiscus petals. The drink is finished with a squeeze of lime and decorated with an orchid.


Bird Café – Verde Fresh

This crazy, deluxe potion has other cocktails turning green with envy. It’s a fancy way to get your greens, with more ingredients than you can shake a swizzle stick at. Dulce Vida Silver Tequila mixes with Art of the Age Rhubarb Liqueur, guava and smoked honey. Then Verde Fresh turns green with a blend of freshly pressed spinach, kale, cucumber, cilantro, parsley and lemon juice. The drink is topped with a splash of rosewater and celery bitters, then served in a champagne glass with a cayenne salted rim and rosehips to gild the lily.


Winslow’s Wine Bar

Here is a summertime mule that’s a real workhorse. Winslow’s serves their Cucumber Mule shaken with tons of ice and served in a brass mule mug. Made with Western Son Cucumber Vodka and Gosling’s Ginger Beer as the backbone, the simply refreshing blend adds little more than fresh lime juice, and simple syrup. An icy cold brass mug is garnished with a slice of cucumber on the rim.

Welcome to Winslow’s

Little Red Wasp – Little Red Wasp

The signature drink at Little Red Wasp is their namesake tequila fantasy. It’s a saucy cocktail with just the right sting for late summer sipping. Dulce Vida Tequila is shaken with house-made red pepper puree, fresh mint, lemon juice, and a touch of jalapeno honey. The result is served with the perfect tiny slivers of ice floating on the top, in a margarita glass and garnished with a slice of jalapeno. It will heat you up and cool you down at the exact same time.
