August is waning but my thirst for a craft cocktail shared with friends isn’t.
At present, the moment is spent inside, due to the aforementioned smoke filtering our August sun, but still. I find enjoyment, wherever I can, every day. I make myself one of these drinks, and I say cheers to a good summer. It’s been a summer of growth for all of us, my children’s long limbs included, and I’m not quite ready to say Farewell to August.
FAREWELL TO AUGUST cocktail
WHY IT’S GREAT: A REFRESHING, PACIFIC NORTHWESTERN ALTERNATIVE TO THE BORING VODKA SODA
makes 1 serving
- 1.5 ounces vodka
- .25 ounces Simple Goodness Sisters’ Marionberry Mint syrup
- 2 ounces club soda
- 1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
- ice (crush it if you feel like it)
- 3 blackberries speared on a toothpick and a sprig of mint, optional but pretty!
How to make it: combine all ingredients except for the club soda in a cocktail shaker halfway full of ice and shake for 10 seconds. Pour contents into a fresh glass of ice and garnish. That is it! Fast, fresh, and easy to batch (make multiples of) for a crowd.
