Mother Nature has been holding back on spring with a late-March snow and colder than average temperatures. For that reason, the timing doesn’t feel quite right to be introducing our Spring Signature Cocktails. On second thought, if we start serving them anyway, we might be able to convince Mother Nature to speed up the arrival of spring. And, if our theory is true, the more of these fruity, refreshing cocktails we serve at Harry’s, the better our chances of seeing warmer weather (hint, hint).
We’re also sharing the recipes so you can make them at home. Flip those PJs inside-out and let’s start mixing some drinks!
The first drink on our list, the Garden Spritzer, was concocted by Harry’s Bar Manager Taylor Malinowski and served as the official drink of Harry’s Ribbon Cutting ceremony on March 13.
“I chose the flavors because I wanted the drink to kind of match the Harry’s logo,” Taylor explains. “Thyme has a great flavor, plus it reminded me of the font in the Harry’s logo. The pomegranate has a beautiful color that also goes with the red in the Harry’s sign. I thought it was a drink to showcase what Harry’s is all about. It was bright, light, but still a little earthy.”
If you’ve ever experimented with infused water, you may have discovered the delightful combination of strawberry, basil and lime. Further enhanced with light rum, this flavorful drink will make cold winter days a distant memory.
The secret ingredient in our third spring cocktail is the vodka. Produced right here in Warrenton, Virginia, Belle vodka is on par with other high-quality brands such as Ketel One and Belvedere.
