The Cape Comes to Hollywood This Summer at the Spare Room

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.
