With the mercury stubbornly settled way below average and snow slush greying on the sidewalks, the upcoming Vernal Equinox on March 20th will be a most welcome day.
For those not quite ready to bid adieu to Old Man Winter (we hear there are some of you out there) – or if you’re simply thirsting for the perfect Oscar Sunday bev – raise a glass of one of our favorite cold weather libations from our Seasonal Bar Menu:
- 2 oz Rum
- 1 oz Rosemary-Earl Grey Syrup*
- Splash fresh lime juice
- 3 dashes Scrappy’s Lime Bitters
- Fever Tree ginger beer
In a Highball glass, build drink with syrup, juice, bitters and rum. Add ice. Top with ginger beer. Garnish with lime wedge.
*Rosemary-Earl Grey Syrup
- ¾ to 1 cup Sugar
- 1 cup Water
- 2 Earl Grey tea bags
- 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
Add sugar and water in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Pull off heat and steep for 10 minutes with rosemary and tea bags. Strain and let cool.
