As winter creeps ever closer, it’s time to enjoy a memento of summer by way of candied ginger-infused gin.
The Ginger Vertigo, found at Harmony Eastown (1551 Lake Dr. SE), is a deceptively smooth summer cocktail that’s hanging around this winter like Johnny Tsunami. It's saccharine, mild and just a teensy bit zippy, with a pale yellow-silver hue to match. Add a wood-fired oven cranking out warmth and pizza in one of the cozier spots around town, and you’ll forget about the cold of winter.
1 1/2 oz. candied ginger-infused gin
1 oz. lemonade
3/4 oz. soda
2 lemon wedges
Pour ginger-infused gin into an iced shaker. Add a splash of lemonade and squeeze both lemon wedges into mixer. Shake vigorously, then strain into glass. Add soda to finish.
Harmony Eastown is located at 1551 Lake Dr. SE.
