5 Summer Cocktails That Will Make You Say "YES" to Post-Work Plans
What do you enjoy most about summer? Is it watching the sun set on the porch? An ice cream cone on a hot day? Fun in the sun by the pool? Or, is your favorite thing sipping a refreshing summer cocktail after a productive day in the office?
If mixed drinks are your thing, our bartenders at "the farmer's daughter" restaurant have crafted a lineup of specialty cocktails for every taste and occasion.
HIBISCUS ROSE G + T | Tanqueray Ten, St. Germain & Hibiscus Rose syrup, topped with Tonic, served on the rocks The hibiscus flower makes a statement and so does this flashy drink. Hibiscus will never go out of style in the cocktail world. It's slightly sweet but mostly tart and assimilates to cranberry. It adds flavor (and color) to a gin & tonic that isn't overpowering and perfectly complements the citrus and floral notes. Whether it's happy hour or girls night out, make sure a Hibiscus Rose is on the agenda.
THE PRETTY MARG | Don Julio Blanco, Agave, Strawberry Marmalade, Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice, served on the rocks She's pretty with a personality. Serving marmalade in cocktails is both classic and chic. Don Julio Blanco adds a crisp agave flavor with hints of citrus to round out this specialty margarita, perfect to consume during golden hour on the Terrace. Heels are required while consuming this beverage.
PINEAPPLE THYME | Ketel One, Thyme & Pineapple Syrup with Lemon & Lime Juices, served up A cocktail that will put you on island thyme; this mix-up provides an herbacious yet tropical twist. It will still give the flavor balance you need against the pineapple's sweetness and the thyme’s savory notes. Kick up your feet and relax in a rocking chair. We'll leave the porch light on.
FROM BLUE BELL, WITH LOVE | Ketel One Oranje, Domaine De Canton, Orange Marmalade, and Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice, served on the rocks with a dash of Orange Bitters Our love letter to you in a glass. It's crisp, and zesty orange freshness fills your nose while you'll notice crisp, juicy orange notes with a warm hint of spice. It will leave a silky soft coating on the palate. Dine under the stars in beautiful Blue Bell, PA with this cocktail in hand and toast to summer with your love. FROM LONDON, WITH LOVE In need of a getaway? Substitute Ketel One Oranje with Tanqueray Flor De Sevilla and hop on the next flight to Paris. Be sure to schedule your "Out Of Office" first.
THE BASIC | Ketel One, St. Germain, Peach Marmalade, Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice, served on the rocks There's nothing #basic about "the farmer's daughter" but this simple, subtly sweet, hint of lime concoction describes her perfectly.
