Feeling parched? Dive into LowBrau’s Poolside. This pinkly pleasing house cocktail is a boozy version of limeade, prepared with gin, Luxardo Maraschino (a sour cherry liqueur) and a dash of fresh citrus juice and bitters. The vivacious, brightly flavored tipple is garnished with a deftly swirled lemon peel and a tuft of mint (mix them into the Poolside for extra flavor). I paired mine with LowBrau’s excellent, meaty Polish dog, slathered with sauerkraut and a generous pile of hot-sweet pickled jalapeños. (I’m sure the cocktail would also pair swimmingly with LowBrau’s popular Bavarian pretzel. Share it with a friend).
