We are in between seasons a bit. There are hot days and chilly days, and sometimes what comes with this weather is a case of the sniffles. Balance it all out with "Tame The Elements," a sparkling water-based drink at Tbar in Philadelphia.
The fizzy herbal blend couples honeysuckle with Golden bell and Chinese bellflower. Each herb is believed to heal one thing or another—golden bell is good for the throat, honeysuckle cleanses the body, and Chinese bellflower is recommended for coughs and colds. They all impart a musky, naturally sweet flavor, creating one delicate drink where you can't mistake the herbal notes for anything else. It's capped with just enough fresh Chinese mint to close off each sip with a cool, clean finish.
