We hope you’re thirsty — Drink Up Month is here, Boston.
It’s time to raise a glass and celebrate everything we love to sip in our city. Here are six specials we’ve rounded up for you to try — all available throughout this month.
Cannonball Cafe, 383 Dorchester Ave.
Switch up your coffee order with a “Filthy Little Chai.” This play on a Dirty Chai features an iced Americano with a spiced chai cold foam.
GrandTen Distilling, 383 Dorchester Ave.
Brighten your spirits with the distillery’s “No Grey Days” cocktail. The tangy drink is made of the new Black Lemon Vodka release + grapefruit juice and rhubarb bitters to add a touch of sweetness and tartness.
Chattermark Distillers, 200 Terminal St.
Stop by this Charlestown distillery for a “Raspberry Gimlet,” featuring the house-made Coastal Forest Gin, crafted with New England’s coastal forests in mind and distilled with white birch, sumac, and locally foraged white pine.
PKL, 64 C St.
This South Boston pickleball venue is working hard for Drink Up Month and shaking up the “Donna Summer.” This cocktail is inspired by the Boston-born disco legend and includes lemon, basil, strawberry, gin, St. Germain, and kiwi.
Tenderoni’s, 1363 Boylston St.
Hop over to the Fenway pizza spot for a “Lil’ Bunny Foo Foo.” Created by bartender Rob Boudreau, this sip is made of gin, cherry herring, benedictine, and acid-adjusted carrots.
Time Out Market, 401 Park Dr.
Head to this Fenway food hall to sip for a cause this month. In case you haven’t herd, the Cow Parade has moooved into our city and for every Mootini ordered, a portion of the proceeds will support The Jimmy Fund.
Bonus: Save the date for July 17-July 21. We’ve teamed up with Will Isaza and local bartenders for a little competition, and we’ll need your help to determine the “Sling of the Summer.” Stay tuned for more details on how you can sample these unique “sling-style” cocktails and vote on your favorite.
Plus, you can take on the BOStoday Brewery Passport challenge to visit the five selected breweries this month for the chance to win two prize packs, each valued ~$100.
