Strega Waterfront: summer cocktails

Printed from:

During the hot summer months, it is nice to sit back and relax after a busy day at work, either outside along the water or inside in chilled air-conditioning. At Strega Waterfront, located in the bustling new Seaport District, the cocktail menu provides the perfect after work beverages served either at the elegant bar or outside on the patio, overlooking the Boston Harbor.

The Silviano, a classic summer drink, is a perfectly pink beverage for any gal (or guy) looking for a sweet and fruity but strong cocktail. Made with S. Pellegrino, fresh lemon juice, Stoli Vodka, pomegranate liquor, a splash of lemonade, and real blueberries, the Silviano is the perfect summer treat for outdoor sipping.

If you dare, you may order the Strega’s “secret drink” that doesn’t have a name. It tastes sort of like fresh cucumber but gets its kick from Hendrick’s gin, limejuice, and simple syrup. Stephen, the bartender, said the cool and refreshing drink reminded him of summer. “It’s perfect for summer even if you are sitting inside.”

All in all, after a couple of sips of either, stretching out on Strega’s patio and taking in the harbor view, it doesn’t much matter if you go for the sweet or the dry. It’s Boston summer at its best. Cheers!
