Playful, patriotic Fourth fare
Aram Boghosian for The Boston Globe
Why not ring in the Fourth with a little splash of red? One idea: Cran-cocktails are plentiful in the Boston bar scene.
Try the Good Life's 8 Kingston, cranberry and pineapple juices spiked with Svedka Orange ($10); and Legal Seafood's Cranberry Bog Lemon Martini, Absolute Citron, cranberry puree, sour mix, and bitters, pictured ($9.95). Or, if youre in more of a savory mood and not looking for a sumptuous sip, Otto in Harvard Square dishes up a house original pizza slice that consists of ricotta, butternut squash, and ... cranberries.
