Recapture the spirit and flavor of childhood with a grown-up version of a root beer float. The Met Back Bay offers a twist on the traditional ice cream parlor drink with its inventive Met Root Float, made with Root spirit, house-made Cracker Jack ice cream, orange vodka, house-made vanilla syrup, and rimmed with crushed, salted peanuts.

A brand new addition to their ‘Summer of the South’ menu, Anvil Bar in H-town is definitely a refuge for amazing cocktails all Summer long – and any time! The Savannah Deluge brings that Southern Hospitality to your lips with a bit of zest…
Art In The Age has brought us delicious liquors: Root, Snap, and Rhuby (Rhubarb Tea!) so far… and it was amazing to meet them at their organic distillery (GreenBar Collective) in downtown LA last week to try the fourth flavor, Sage! And not to play favorites, but Sage is definitely coming in as my favorite after Root! It’s delicious ~ especially in the Sageside (SAGE, simple syrup, fresh lime juice, and mint) that renowned bartender, Charlotte Voisey, created! They describe it as “Instilled with organic botanicals including thyme, rosemary, lavender, fennel and, of course, sage. Warm on the tongue with a dry and splendidly smooth finish. Inspiring aroma with floral, woodsy notes. A deliciously unique way to reinvent vodka or gin-based cocktails.”
This year, we’re doing Philly Beer Week right, with two music and beer-filled events. Just added: The Sierra Nevada Shindig at Fergie’s with Birdie Busch on Tuesday, June 5th. We’ve long counted Birdie Busch as one of our very favorite Philly artists, and we’re stoked to have her join us for this free show, downstairs at Fergie’s, while we sample the many flavors of Sierra Nevada. Birdie was kind enough to share the track above with us, and you! Enjoy.
