As we say goodbye to the summer sun and hello to fall foliage, we welcome the perfect transitional cocktail as this week’s drink of the week, Fig’n Fruity from Tuckahoe Inn. What better way to celebrate the coming of autumn and the second season for domestic figs?
Bartender Theresa whipped up the Fig’n Fruity for us by first muddling orange slices to release their fresh juices. She then added ice, fig vodka, club soda and a splash of cranberry juice. She shook it up and gave it an orange slice garnish, then placed the beautiful, light pink concoction with floating orange slices in front of us to indulge. The result was a sweet, citrusy, refreshing cocktail with a bubble.
Experience the tastes of the Fig’n Fruity during Tuckahoe Inn’s Happy Hour Monday through Friday from 4 to 6 p.m., featuring $1 off house liquors, house wines, house martinis and select beers, plus a special $5 snack menu. Starting in September, Tuckahoe will welcome back daily dinner and bar specials Sunday through Thursday, including flatbread and select beer specials on Sunday, wing night on Monday, two for one apps on Tuesday, specialty sandwich night on Wednesday and burger night on Thursday. Enjoy your meal and cocktail over live music Monday through Saturday!
