Following up a few posts ago, Eastern Standard has unintentionally upped my ante on Rosè and cocktails. Their Marco Polo features house-made rhubarb vermouth (email me for the recipe if you are adventurous enough to try on your own), sparkling rosè and Aperol. Sipping this is even more fun than playing "Marco Polo" in the water as a kid- all things I love together, the vermouth works with the rhubarb and strawberry in the Aperol, rounded out by cherry, more strawberry and acid in the wine. Yes, please- join me on the ES patio sooner than later, it's like a dip in the pool.
