Hump Day Cocktail From ShakeStir: The Summer Solstice
ShakeStir

The Summer Solstice, made by Saul Ranella.

Our friends over at ShakeStir have asked the nearly 2,000 (and growing) bartenders in their community to submit signature cocktail recipes for potential coverage on The Daily Meal. Each Wednesday**, the drink that snags the most 5-star ratings (according to his or her ShakeStir peers) will be featured on The Daily Meal — along with a recipe, photo, and link to the selected bartender's profile — as part of the new weekly "Hump Day" Cocktail series.

This week's winner, the Summer Solstice, comes from New York City's La Mar bar manager, Saul Ranella. His inspiration for the sticky-sweet, whiskey cocktail, he says, comes from a New York City summer. 

Thanks to our bartender friends at ShakeStir for contributing, and stay tuned for more Hump Day Cocktails!

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
