Seventh Son Brewing Co. Kitty Paw Hard Seltzer
Find this cherry-blackberry craft brewery’s take on hard seltzer on tap at Seventh Son Brewing. A departure from the typical canned seltzer, Kitty Paw avoids the artificial taste that can overwhelm mass-produced seltzer. This seltzer on tap is for all the non- beer drinkers at any happy hour and is now available as cans locally! The flavor isn’t overwhelming – perfect for porch drinking or a taste of summertime during these chilly winter months. With zero carbs, 110 calories, and containing only three ingredients: water, yeast, and fruit, it keeps it simple and does it well. Ditch the White Claws and support your local businesses with Kitty Paw.
2 Oz. gin
1 Tsp sugar (the finer the better)
1⁄2 Oz. lemon juice
5 Oz. brut champagne
Shake gin, sugar, and lemon juice with ice in a cocktail shaker. Strain into a glass and top it o with champagne. If you’re missing a cocktail shaker, you can DIY your own by using a glass topped with a red solo cup to shake, then just flip the red solo cup over to strain out the ice! This cocktail is a fizzy twist on your average white sangria, but it took the weekend off to visit the Big Apple for NYE. Cheers with your friends and party like you’re at Gatsby’s house this syllabus week.
