even though it's drew in the picture...

Muddle lime and basil, shake with a shot of gin, top with a dash of chambord and a float of soda.

This spring we planted a rooftop garden. We're harvesting a lot of our own herbs for our dishes, pastries, and cocktails from these beds, and our staff is enjoying the space during their breaks. My current favorite is our version of a caprese salad - but we use burrata (cream infused mozzeralla flown up from the Gioia cheese company of Southern California), local heirloom tomatoes, and basil picked from our roof - it's too good.

Our bartenders are using the herbs to come up with a bartender rooftop special cocktail...this is what Nick came up with a few days ago. yummo!
