As I sit here enjoying the summer heat, sipping a refreshing Pal-O-Ma-God I think to myself; “Self, I wonder if everyone knows about our amazing cocktails at Spyce Harvard Square”. This then lends itself to a revelation! I should write something to tell people about these glorious, thirst-quenching, heat-beating drinks and the delicious bowls they pair with! So below is some insight on how to “Spyce” up your warm bowl or salad with a summertime cocktail.
Pal-O-Ma-God & The Mesa Mole Verde with Plancha Seared Portobello
This is super refreshing, the slight spice from the portobello and the tang from the tomatillos in the mole verde pair perfectly with the Chinaco Blanco Tequila. You can really taste the fresh grapefruit juice and amazing lime and rosemary simple syrup.
Gin Membership & The Golden Greek Salad with Za’atar Spiced Chicken Thigh
Talk about a Mediterranean vacation for your mouth. The fresh flavors of dill golden beets and heirloom tomatoes with lemon tahini vinaigrette match so well with this take on a classic cocktail. The cucumber simple syrup makes each sip feel like a rejuvenating spa day for your taste buds.
Let that Mango & The All Mi Salad with Chicken Breast
I think Lizzo said it best, “Why men are great till they gotta be great”; just Let that Mango be your summertime cocktail flex. Pair it with The All Mi Salad which has an amazing Cilantro Mint Dressing and fresh mango. Made with local Bully Boy Vodka and a habanero simple syrup this drink is sure to keep him sweating in your DM’s.
Berried Away & The Berry Goat Mother Salad with Seared Salmon
This is your summertime duo you never knew you needed, but will now crave day after day. Fresh strawberries in the salad also garnish the cocktail and bring out the flavor of the strawberry black teas. Perfectly cooked salmon pairs perfectly with the subtle spice from the Bully Boy Rum. It’s 5pm somewhere, indulge and be extra!
