Ramp Gibson @ Trummer's on Main
Trummer's on Main's mixologist and owner Stefan Trummer spent two years infusing gin and vodka with springtime ramps---wild onions with notes of garlic. Don't be startled by the description: The Ramp goes to show that something as bizarre as a garlic-onion
tasting cocktail can still be delicious when under proper direction./ 7134 Main St., Clifton. Photo courtesy of Trummer's on Main.
Guava Daiquri @ Legal Sea Foods
While you await your summertime travel plans, get in the mood for warm weather with a refreshing guava daiquiri. Plantation 3 Star Rum, Malibu, guava, fresh pineapple and lime give this cocktail a kick of spring. / 2301 Jefferson Davis Highway, Arlington. Photo courtesy of Legal Sea Foods.
Fresh Watermelon Crush @ Legal Sea Foods
Simplicity can be delicious, too. Consisting of a trifecta
of Russian original vodka, watermelon and sugar, the Fresh Watermelon Crush is both refreshing and, well, nice to look at. / 2301 Jefferson Davis Highway, Arlington. Photo courtesy of Legal Sea Foods.
