Yerba Buena: Fresh Fruit Cocktails
Last Saturday, my cousin Paulina and I checked out Yerba Buena on Perry Street and were delighted to discover some super-fresh-fruity cocktails and great bites at the bar. Alex Valencia was on hand to mix for us and treated us to his prize-winning cocktail for Double Cross: a Cherry Tomato Gimlet. He muddled 2 very ripe cherry tomatoes with simple syrup, then added fresh lime juice and a shot and a half of Double cross vodka. After shaking with ice and he strained into chilled martini glass. I love the subtle flavors of the cherries mixed with the lime. See more photos of the other cocktails we tried and what we ate at this link.
