The summer is in full swing, which means sunny afternoons, long evenings and refreshing cocktails!  We’ve recently opened a new store in Watch Hill, Rhode Island and quickly learned the local summer drink of choice: the South Side.  After partnering with Oysterville Vodka we've created our own version of the classic. Cool and refreshing these are best served al fresco with a view of Block Island Sound.
