Cry Baby Cry at Seventh Street Social: Take a long lunch with this drink of the week
Cider, ginger beer, and bubbly make for an intriguing afternoon dalliance.
Cry Baby Cry Seventh Street Social $8
No frills, no strings attached self-indulgence in an off the beaten path location? No, we're not endorsing some illicit fling, just an innocent lunch at Seventh Street Social. If buttoned-down businessmen knocking back a few with their buttermilk fried chicken gets your engine revving then pencil this tryst into your schedule, ASAP. Sneak off the clock and prepare your alibi while you sip on a Cry Baby Cry, afternoon delight in bubbly liquid form.
Not that we'd actively encourage getting tipsy on your lunch break, but hypothetically speaking, this simple combination of hard cider, ginger beer, and prosecco is refreshingly light, easy on the hard stuff, and just right for a moment of reasonable decadence. Cry Baby Cry works well whether you're toasting a well-won victory in the boardroom or escaping to lament an unfortunate incident in your personal life. Served in a dainty flute, this cocktail is spicy, sparkly, and tart, with bonus points for a generously sized garnish of candied ginger. Chew a bit of this as you head back from whence you came, and none will be the wiser as to your whereabouts.
