Meaghan Sinclair and Harmony Dawn, the women behind Booze Époque, a Somerville-based boutique cocktail company, are all about using delicious, high-quality ingredients in their drinks. They handcraft a lot of what goes into the cocktails and often tap local resources, like other small businesses, for inspiration and ingredients. And each month they write a seasonally appropriate recipe for Beat readers.
With the weather finally turning a bit warmer, it’s time for cocktails on the porch or in the yard. This month’s Seasonal Sip incorporates lots of summery flavors that make a refreshing drink perfect for a sunny day. Cheers!
