Cocktails to Cool Off with at a.bar
Earlier today we stopped by a.bar to check in on the summer cocktails that the Rittenhouse cocktail bar has added to their menu. Bartender Paul MacDonald joined us on Facebook Live to make us an Angostura Float, a rum-based cocktail made with Angostura bitters ice cream that is just perfect for this unbearable hot days and nights.
The cocktail is definitely rum forward in the best way and as the ice cream melts, becomes a creamy cooling and refreshing way to relax. The angostura ice cream worked remarkably well, definitely better than just about any beer-flavored ice cream I’ve come across.
In addition to this cool cocktail, a.bar has added the following hot weather cocktails to its list.
Bread and Puppet: Bols Genever, Oloroso Sherry, lime, cacao, orange twist
