When we ate at The Farm the cocktails we sipped on almost stole the show. They were so good that we thought they deserved their own blog post. The menu included so many interesting drinks that we let our waiter, who also often works at the bar, choose a couple from the list for us to sample.
I tried the most unusual one, the Phat Beetz, a bright pink cocktail made with pickled beet puree, ginger liquor and tangeray, a blend that easily grew on me as I slowly sipped on it. This more-savory-than-sweet cocktail challenged my taste buds but ever since then I’ve been craving less sweet cocktails. I’m sharing the recipe for the Phat Beetz cocktail on theVintageMixer today. Josh tried the Summer Solstice, a mixture of High West Bouyre, peach/mint/white tea emulsion served in a highball with a finish of Squatters IPA.
Around dessert time we had to try the Farm Gin Fizz, a tall strawberry milkshake-like drink not for kids. This cocktail is a combinations of Bombay Sapphire, a citrus medley, cream, strawberry reduction, fresh egg white, served in a collins glass floated with sparkling water. The sparkling water mixed with the cream and egg whites together create a foam similar to what you sip off the top of an ice cream float. This is a dessert cocktail that will cure your cravings for ice cream and fruit all in the same sip.
We enjoyed our cocktails while sitting under the atrium overlooking the sun slowly going down behind the green slopes. A perfect evening in my book.
