A couple of weeks ago, Elizabeth told you about the Bon Appetit Grub Crawl and mentioned that the friendly folks at Belvedere had shared a few recipes for knockout summer cocktails. Here are three of our favorites — each associated with a particular stop on the Crawl.
There are two things to note, though:
1: There aren’t any measures here because (a) the recipes are pretty self-explanatory, (b) you’re smart enough to figure this out, and (c) we want you to feel comfortable experimenting with flavors until you get these drinks just the way you like them. Also, (d) we didn’t receive any measures.
2: It should be obvious that these recipes will work with any vodka you happen to have lying around the icebox, but since these are such simple cocktails, and since vodka plays such a prominent role, you should probably stick to a call brand rather than the stuff you pick up at CVS for $5 a gallon. But whatever: it’s your stomach.
