Stock your bar, it's summertime!

You’ve swapped your boots for flip-flops and sweaters for tee shirts, but have you redressed your bar? Check out these lovely libations that make for refreshing summer sippers on the deck.

Alander spiced rum and Solveig gin from Far North Spirits
http://farnorthspirits.com/

Made with local grains grown on the farm in Hallock, MN, these two spirits are making a splash. Alander is a nicely spice rum that isn’t too sweet, and Solveig is a floral gin that is soft and not too piney.

Gamle Ode’s Celebration Aquavit

Now that we’ve embraced Aquavit, especially this locally-made brand, it’s time to welcome Celebration Aquavit: distilled with dill, caraway, coriander, juniper, vanilla bean, star anise, and a little citrus before it’s aged in local Alexis Bailley Vineyards barrels.

Loon Liquors Loonshine

Loonshine, moonshine, what’s the difference? These crazy distillers out of Northfeild will replace your dark whiskey drinking with this liquor which is made from the same mash, but unaged so it remains clear and fresh.

Art in the Age Rhubarb Tea
http://www.artintheage.com/our-spirits/rhuby/

For a beverage packed with so many ingredients (rhubarb, carrots, beets coriander, lemon, villa, cardamom) this is a light and lyrical sipper. It’s antique, crisp and a bit tangy with an herbaceous bite.

Pierre Ferrand Dry Curacao
http://pierreferrandcuracao.com/en/

A traditional French triple sec, it has been thrice distilled with spices, bitters, and orange peels from the island of Curacao blended with brandy and cognac. It will elevate your margaritas to new heights.

‘Yuzu Juice

Yuzu is a Japanese citrus fruit that brings a surprising lift to any drink. Plus, you can toss a little in your shrimp marinade pre-grill.
