Silk Road cocktail

Illustration by Priscilla Garcia

Looking to drink local? Organic Silk Road Soda ($1.99-$3) from Roseville is based on a Mediterranean recipe that includes tart vinegar with sweet mint and other flavors. I like the cucumber-mint version on its own, but it makes a fancy cocktail without much work. Mix it with Pimm's Cup and add a lemon twist. Voila—you're at Wimbledon! Or muddle fresh mint, then stir in some gin and the Silk Road pomegranate-mint flavor for some rehydration on a scorching afternoon. Don white linen. Dream of cooling breezes. http://silkroadsoda.com.
