Seasonal summer flavors are showcased in the new blood orange olive oil-based cocktail, The FIG & OLIVE with cucumber-infused vodka, blood orange purée, celery, egg white, simple syrup, and lime juice. Ingredients like strawberries, rhubarb, and raspberries celebrate summer’s bounty in additional new cocktails including:
