The Chili Devil Margarita

chili-devil-thumb

With longer days ahead of us, what better way to bring in Spring than by indulging in some good ole' fashioned day drinking. Sure, you could go to a bar and hang out but it's definitely prime rooftop season and we think we found the perfect little mate to help you relax on top of your building. This sweet and spicy cocktail will knock you on your ass (believe us, we had a little too much fun testing this recipe) and is made with one of our newest arrivals and one of our old favorites. Royal Rose's Three Chiles Simple Syrup adds a deep smokiness to this margarita while the sweet and grassy notes from Belvoir's Lime and Lemongrass Cordial play with the bright burn from the tequila.

The North 63rd

thyme-thumb

With all the heavy foods that are so often eaten during this time of year, it's nice to switch it up and sip on something that's super bright and refreshing; something that won't weigh you down, but instead lifts you up. That's why we love this refreshing cocktail that uses fruity pear and eldlerflower presse, florally gin, and earthy thyme. It's a cocktail that you can sip on year round, although we like it best during the chilly nights of winter.
