Nothing beats a refreshing drink on a hot summer day, so we invited Lonnie Newburn of The Boston Shaker to join us to demonstrate how to make his twists on two classic summer drinks, a daiquiri and a Venetian Spritz.
A classic bitter Italian cocktail, typically enjoyed as an aperitif before dinner.
Directions: Build ingredients over ice in a highball or wine glass and then stir briefly to mix.
A classic sour cocktail, enjoyed on hot summer days.
- 1 oz rum (Newburn recommends Privateer Amber Rum)
- 1 oz Amontillado sherry
- 3/4 oz fresh lime juice
- 1/2 oz simple syrup
Directions: Build cocktail in a Boston shaker, add ice, and shake for 10 seconds. Strain into cocktail or coupe glass.
