A spirited toast to all things alcoholic! By Leslie Dinaberg

Inspired by our warm, spring days, S.Y. Kitchen Mixologist Alberto Battaglini has added five creative new cocktails to the menu, all inspired by local market produce, herbs and botanicals.

Battaglini is the General Manager and resident Mixologist at S. Y. Kitchen where he creates his own infusions of spirits and bitters from a local bounty of fruits, vegetables and herbs.  “The soul of mixology is found in all the old recipes that we twist with modern ingredients and tools, in order to play with tastes to give every customer an extraordinary experience,” he says.

His newest cocktails include:

DOUBLE FRENCH BERRIES with cognac, blackberry, raspberry, mandarin napoleon infused with vanilla, simple syrup, courtesy SY Kitchen.
