The Best Cocktails To Drink in Boston’s South End Neighborhood this Spring
Patio season is upon us and do you know what that means? Happy hour is EVERY HOUR! We are so excited to sit outside and sip some spring cocktails. The South End is full of great spots to drink cocktails this spring so we’re here to give you a head start. Speaking of happy hour, stay tuned for our Happy Hour Tour that is in the works. But for now, get to sippin’ with this list and we’ll see you there!
This spring cocktail is a play on our favorite over-the-top lady, Moira Rose, from Schitt’s Creek. That show got us through quarantine so now we’re ready to celebrate it, but not forget, with some sweet and sassy sipping. This frosé has rosé, vodka, curaçao, orange, lemon, and simple syrup. It’s veryyy sippable.
This spring cocktail hits all the flavor notes. It’s sweet, spicy, tart, and refreshing. Check, check, check and check! It’s made with pisco, st. george green chili, grapefruit and pineapple cordial, lemon, rhubarb bitters, and topped with club soda. Pisco is an un-aged brandy that is distilled using recently fermented Peruvian grape musts and juices. Fun fact–it’s actually the Peruvian national spirit.
The simple joy of really good sangria on a patio is what spring and summer are all about. Get the best of the best at Orinoco, one of our Sweet & Savory South End Tour prartners. If Orinoco’s red sangria is wrong then we don’t ever, ever want to be right. It’s full of flavor and perfectly balanced with red wine, passionfruit juice, and spiced melao. Swoooon.
Staycation has taken on a whole new meaning this past year. But now that people are getting vaccinated and things are opening take your staycation out of your house and into a local restaurant like Bootleg Special. Not only do we love them because they are awesome, but we love them because they are one of our Sweet & Savory South End Tour partners. It’s like a trip to NOLA without the price or humidity. Sip on their Rasperry Beret cocktail that’s made with vodka, raspberry cordial, lemon, and mint. It checks all the spring cocktail boxes–light, refreshing, and fruity. Woo!
Take yourself to the
tropics South End for both your good time and your remedy all in one at Myers + Chang. How convenient. Their version of a painkiller is called Take Two (and Call Me in the Morning). Very fitting, as it’s made with rum, pineapple, coconut and blood orange cream, and a sprinkle of pepper salt. It’s just what the doctor ordered. In that case we’ll be extra conscientious of our health and take three!
If you’re feeling blue turn those tears into a toast with the Rita Azul from Toro. This spring cocktail will put a smile on your face with tequila, blue curaçao, lime, a Tajin rim, and a Tecate float. Feeling better already? We thought so! Toro knows how to have a good time with some drinks so put your sipping pants on.
This spring cocktail should really come with a DO NOT DISTURB sign, because once it shows up at your table you’re on an island, and trust us, you will not want to be disturbed except to order another one. This Santorini Lemonade is made with mastiha, sweet fresh watermelon, and tart lemonade.
Spring Fling from The Elephant Walk
Cheers to spring, friends! It has arrived in this glass from our Sweet & Savory South End Tour partner, The Elephant Walk. We’ve been cooped up for too long now and we are ready to strut our stuff; and we’re starting with this spring fling cocktail in hand! This spring-y cocktail is made with orange vodka, passion fruit, blood orange, and topped with prosecco. Yes please.Tags: bites of boston, south end drinks, spring cocktails boston, spring cocktails south end, spring drinks south end, spring sipping boston
