Recipe from our Beach House: Blueberry, Mint and Lemon Zest Soda
At our Beach House, we take pride in our handcrafted sodas. Not only are they made with the freshest ingredients; they also give off a beautiful scent while being infused. We offer one-of-a-kind selections including Pineapple & Hibiscus and Passion Fruit & Ginger.
At Anchor & Den, we were romanced by the concept of an Apothecary. Traditionally a place that sold elixirs and potions – we thought it would be the perfect inspiration for our Happy Hour program. Born out of our love for herbs and spices, these magical ingredients are the foundation for all our holistic cocktails and sodas. Our talented mixologists use homemade syrups, infused waters, flowers and dehydrated fruits to create their unique botanical blends. We consider our bartenders to be innovators and we encourage them to explore their creativity, from experimenting with basil-infused ice cubes to smoking liquors.
Here Daniele Fitzgerald, our Lead Bartender at Anchor & Den, shares the recipe for one of our delicious concoctions. Cheers!
