Endless Summer: BBQ's

Coming off the rush of semi-nice weather this Memorial Day, we're inspired. We want to be outside all-day, laying on blankets, under oak trees, talking with our friends and sipping iced cocktails.

And we just happen to have the ultimate BBQ cocktail which we created for CY magazine in the name of summer! We will also be serving this cocktail at Dovetail's 3rd year anniversary Sat. June 4 from 12:00pm-3:00pm. Come help us celebrate.

Summertime CY
1 1/2 gin
3/4 oz fresh lemon
1 oz strawberry-rhubarb simple syrup
fresh mint
soda water
angostura bitters

Muddle 3-4 mint leaves in cocktail shaker. Add gin, lemon, and strawberry-rhubarb simple syrup. Shake and serve over ice in collins glass. Top with soda water. Garnish with 3 drops bitters and sprig of fresh mint.

Strawberry-rhubarb simple syrup
pint strawberries
3 stalks rhubarb
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup water

Cut strawberries and rhubarb roughly into 1/2 inch pieces. Combine strawberries, rhubarb, sugar and water. Bring to boil and then simmer gently for 30 min. Cool and strain into tightly sealed container. Should keep in refrigerator for several weeks.

Notes: The fresh mint really is the key to this refreshing cocktail. Muddling the mint before building the cocktail in the shaker will help to release the essential oils and give your drink that extra layer of summer deliciousness.
