On this week’s Moveable Feast, Rachel and John discussed why right now is the perfect time to ditch your go-to drink and experiment with new fruity flavors.
Save a gin and tonic for home and try the Beet Cosmo at Craftsman, which puts a spin on a classic with infusions of lime and Cointreau, or Icehouse’s Little Richard. The latter is a refreshing rum-berry punch complete with a cutout of the iconic musician floating atop a surface of vanilla cream foam.
And don’t be afraid to experiment on your own. With fresh produce is at its seasonal peak, you simply can’t go wrong. Stop by a local farmer’s market to stock up on fresh fruits—or maybe even veggies—for your next homemade cocktail, experimenting with syrups and garnishes.
