Wednesday nights this summer you don't have to go to Cape Cod to experience some old fashioned New England summer breezes as the Spare Room hosts a Wednesday night Nantucket special.
Nantucket Sound cocktails are only $7, with mini lobster (pronounced lob-stah for you non Yankees) rolls for $5, beer for $3 and best of all half off bowling (a $50 savings). What is in a Nantucket Sound you ask? Naomi Schimek's recipe is:
1 1/2 oz. Chamomile and lemon balm infused Plymouth gin
3/4 oz. Bianco vermouth
2 oz. Fresh pressed cantaloupe juice
Fresh lemon juice and Peychaud's Bitters to taste
Shake ingredients together with ice and strain over a scoop of spiced ginger sorbet. Garnish with a candied lemon balm leaf.
Sounds like a perfectly civilized way to while away a Wednesday evening. The Spare Room becomes your "Cape House" every Wednesday this summer from 6 - 9 pm.
