SUMMER DRINKING: 5 new cocktails at Cardinal

Erica Sagon

Our summer menu is loaded with Cardinal favorites plus five new cocktails crafted by our outstanding bar crew: Logan Hunter, Chris Resnick, Andrew Wind, Baylee Pruitt and Jake Cifuentes.

There's a little bit of everything: tart, sweet, herbal, bitter. The common thread is how refreshing they all are. Perfect for taking the edge off on these dastardly hot days.

The Apothecary (pictured): Dry vermouth, our house-made Redbird Elixir, tonic and aromatic bitters. In three words: Rustic. Bitter. Balanced.

River City Ransom: Tiki Rum, vanilla-allspice syrup, lemon juice, grapefruit juice, cinnamon bitters. In three words: Citrusy. Savory. Seasonal.

Pineapple Bottom Jeans: Tiki Rum, habanero syrup, pineapple juice, lemon juice, fresh mint. In three words: Hot. Tropical. Fresh.

Uppers and Downers: Standard Dry Gin, Cobra Verde (an iced green-coffee bean drink from Hopscotch Coffee) ginger syrup, black walnut syrup. In three words: Earthy. Refreshing. Spicy.

Beso de Ginebra: Standard Dry Gin, pineapple juice, lemon juice, ginger-allspice syrup, dry vermouth. In three words: Light, Crisp. Sweet.
