As a part of his regular effort to keep me apprised of fun events in the Boston area, our friend Ocean Spray Brad sent me this link earlier in the week, with a quick note that it made him think of "the MD crew." Boston.com asked bartenders from around the city to submit a favorite summertime cocktail. The result is a collection of ten delicious-sounding drinks, each begging for a theme night of its own.
My favorite is the cilantro gimlet from Ecco on Porter Street. It sounds like a fun, slightly upscale, alternative to a margarita - and isn't it pretty? Looks to me like a perfect match for a batch of Alicia's guac and a few of Jen's quesadillas. In other words, the perfect sitting-outside-on-a-summer-night drink.
And that's a theme night I can always get behind.
