Sweet signature

Krakow Salt Mine, Red Rabbit Kitchen & Bar

Illustration by HANS BENNEWITZ

You’ve probably heard about it, but if you haven’t, can we talk about the Krakow Salt Mine ($9) at Red Rabbit? Developed by Matt Nurge, it’s become one of the Sacramento bar scene’s signature cocktails. With a base of slightly sweet Zubrowka (a bison-grass vodka) and apple cider, it’s perked up with lemon juice, simple syrup and ginger beer. The tall drink is then garnished with salt and an apple slice. The result is sweet, sour, salty and incredibly refreshing: a perfect drink for the warm weather we’re suddenly seeing. 2718 J Street, http://theredrabbit.net.
