“Summer Heat” — Infinity Beverages Winery & Distillery
One of their most popular cocktails, “Summer Heat” is made with your choice of Infinity's Original Audacity Vodka or naturally infused Audacity Chile Pepper Vodka (for those that like a little more kick in their sip). The cocktail is a combination of house made simple syrup, lemonade, fresh cucumber and jalapenos making it slightly spicy but also delightfully refreshing.
The majority of Infinity's cocktails change with the Fall and Spring seasons but Summer Heat is so popular that it remains on the Tasting Lounge Menu regardless of the season! There's always something happening and something new to sip at Infinity Beverages Winery and Distillery.

“Verse/Prose” — Modicum Brewing Co.
These two sister beers are brewed with the exact same recipe: same malts, hops, etc. but they’re fermented with different yeast strains. Prose is a classic euro-style pilsner. It’s clean and toasty with a floral hop note. Verse is a Belgian-style saison. It’s bursting with fruity esters and an earthy spiciness. Try them both in an 8 oz. comparative flight to see what a difference yeast makes.

“Lavender Collins” — River Bend Vinyard & Winery
River Bend’s Lavender Collins is a reiteration of a classic with a fresh twist. This cocktail is made with gin, lavender simple syrup, fresh squeezed lemon, and club soda. However, River Bend’s Craftsman Gin is what really enhances this cocktail with natural citrus and lavender notes, setting it apart from any other Collins. On a visit to River Bend, it’s one drink you absolutely have to try.
