Salted Lime Collins
A variation on the Salted Plum Collins that’s offered at Pok Pok, this drink subs in salted limes. The salted lime half is muddled, then mixed with vodka, fresh lemon juice, simple syrup, and a splash of soda. “Andy saw the salted limes at the store—it’s a Thai product—and it just worked really well,” explains Pieretti.
A riff on the classic Brandy Alexander, this cocktail combines vodka with coconut cream, lime juice, simple syrup, and mango purée. “It’s a great drink to have with a spicy dish,” says Pieretti.
Raspberry Drinking Vinegar ($5)
They're offering tamarind, pomegranate, honey, pineapple, ginger, purple basil, apple, and raspberry drinking vinegar, plus some seasonal flavors to drink with seltzer or to take home by the bottle.
“I love Aperol, it has lighter flavors, more grapefruit, and blends really nicely with a bunch of different items. And it’s delicious,” says Pieretti of this cocktail’s star ingredient, which is featured alongside gin, fresh lime juice, and rhubarb bitters. “Not all of the drinks are on the sweeter or fruitier side," Pieretti says. "This one has no sugar, but it’s still refreshing and pairs well with the food.”
“The drinking vinegars are kind of sweet and tart and work well in drinks and with the food,” says Pieretti. This one calls for honey drinking vinegar, which is shaken with tequila, fresh grapefruit, and lime.
