Caught in Southie Summer Cocktail Challenge
Maybe it’s the sunshine or the heat, but summertime makes us want to slow down, relax and sip on some ice cold cocktails. We’ve gathered up the recipes from some of our favorites from around town. We want you to taste-test them and then vote for our first ever Summer Cocktail Challenge. The voting will begin on Monday, August 26th.

Local 149’s summer sipper, the “Slanty Shandy”:
“This drink is our take on the thirst-quenching “Shandy”, traditionally a combination of lemonade and beer.
We start with Absolut Craft Herbaceous Lemon, a vodka infused with lemongrass, lemon myrtle and lemon thyme.
Then we add freshly squeezed lemon juice, honey and a dash of Angostura bitters.
After a quick shake to get it frosty, we strain this into a chilled beer glass and add Ommegang white ale.
It’s super-easy to enjoy on the hot days.”
1.5 ounces Absolute citron,
1 ounce of triple sec
Splash of cranberry and squeeze of lemon
Shake it up.
Serve straight up in a martini glass
