Range Inspired Cocktails

Even before tasting the cocktails and food at Range, you can tell that Bryan Voltaggio and his team respect and enjoy their craft. The open kitchen layout showcases a multitude of stations producing house made products. The bar is no exception, with oak caskets aging house-made spirits and homemade shrubs and bitters lining the bar. After spending a couple hours at the bar sipping on their playful, delicious creations and chatting about drinks and food with the bartenders, I was struck by two concepts: experimenting with technique & flavor and a respect for seasonal ingredients. These concepts inspired me to create two cocktails to serve my guests at a recent al fresco cocktail party. You’ll find one recipe plus some easy entertaining tips below and the other recipe on Julip Made.
