Spring Cocktails in Bergen County

 

Seasonal changes outside for Spring 2018 have ushered a number of changes inside at Sofia. That includes four new cocktails to our menu crafted by our excellent mixology team. More than just a tasty libation, each drink has a unique story to share:

RICKEY ROZAY

Ford’s gin is shaken with strawberry infused Campari, rosé wine, rosemary, lemon juice, tonic and topped with vermouth cream. Think of this as a fun gin & tonic with a spring rosé vibe — the rosemary rose syrup is contrasted with a strawberry infused Campari that is bittersweet.

MATCHA CHA CHA

Hendricks gin is shaken with matcha, lemon juice, agave nectar and homemade coriander fennel syrup, served over a large ice cub. Enjoy green tea with a little lemonade — it's our version of a green Arnold Palmer.

MAIN SQUEEZE

Aperol is shaken with Cointreau, lemon juice, egg white, dehydrated grapefruit, topped with ginger beer, served up. This drink is basically a traditional sour with spice from some ginger beer — it's an homage to the Aperol Incognito, the grand-prize winning entry in the Cointreau & Saveur 2011 Bar Star Mix-off Competition.

SEÑOR FLACO

Vida mezcal shaken with passion fruit, lime juice, housemade espresso syrup and topped with grapefruit shandy, served tall. Just because mezcal doesn’t get a lot of love, this smokey & savory agave spirit is paired with tart Passionfruit and a spring phenom in the grapefruit shandy — It also serves as a pick me up with the housemade espresso syrup crafted with vanilla bean and raw cacao nibs.
